Madurai-Singapore flight possible only if Indian carriers evince interest: MP

The Centre would permit air travel from Madurai to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Muscat only if Indian carriers evince interest in operating flights on this route and not otherwise, according to Virudhunagar Member of Parliament B. Manickam Tagore who is also a member of the consultative committee on civil aviation.

His statement is contrary to the claims made by a few trade bodies here that the decks had been cleared for operating Madurai-Singapore flight from January next.

Speaking to The Hindu over phone from Tiruchuli, he said that the Civil Aviation Ministry was particular in encouraging Indian airline operators to fly more international flights so that the country could earn foreign exchange.
