“The meeting has been called to address queries of the operators on the implementation of the RCS scheme,” the source added.

During the discussion, the ministry and the scheme implementing agency, Airports Authority of India, will explain various aspects related to the execution of UDAN, the source said.

Last month, the government awarded 128 air routes under the regional connectivity scheme to five operators which include Airline Allied Services, SpiceJet, Air Deccan, Air Odisha and Turbo Megha.

The scheme mandates capping of fares at Rs 2,500 for one-hour flights and also seeks to connect 45 unserved and under-served airports.
