India to look at enhancing air connectivity to China


As Prime Minister Narendra Modi embarks on a three-day visit to China from tomorrow, India may look at enhancing air connectivity between the two nations.

“We will certainly look at increasing air services to China,” a Civil Aviation Ministry source said here on May 13.

At present, only Air India connects India with China flies to Shanghai from New Delhi four-times a week.

Private carries, Jet Airways and SpiceJet, had commenced services to Shanghai and Guangzhou respectively but later they opted out due to commercial considerations.

They said, Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou offer good passenger potential and the Government would favourably consider any proposal in this regard, if it comes from the domestic airlines.
