Air Odisha gets flying permit, to begin operations on February 17 from Gujarat

Feb 13, 2018

Bhubaneswar-based Air Odisha has received regulatory approvals to begin scheduled passenger commuter services under the regional connectivity scheme.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation on Tuesday issued Air Odisha the scheduled commuter operator permit, which allows the airline to launch its services on regional routes, an Air Odisha official said, adding till now it had only a non-scheduled operator permit.

“We got flying permit today. We will launch operations as a scheduled commuter airline from the 17th of this month with flight services to Mundra from Ahmedabad,” Air Odisha operations head Santosh rpt Santosh Pani told PTI over phone today.

The maiden flight will be inaugurated by Gujarat chief miniser Vijay Rupani, he said, adding that flights to Jamnagar from Ahmedabad will also begin on the same day.

“The Ahmedabad-Diu service is scheduled for February 25 and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to flag off the flight,” an official said.
Air Odisha had bagged 50 routes under the subsidised regional connectivity scheme last March. Pani said the airline has acquired a 19-seater Beechcraft B-1900D plane and two more will join the fleet by the month-end.

As per the schedule, it will begin services from New Delhi, Ahmedabad, Bhubaneswar and Chennai to various underserved airports in Odisha, Gujarat, UP, Tamil Nadu, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Andhra and Puducherry.

Air Odisha has already forged a strategic partnership with Air Deccan, which bagged 34 routes, under which the two will share each other’s network and resources to cut cost.

Collectively, the two airlines plan to operate 108 flights daily connecting 67 airports over the next few months, with a combined fleet of 12 Beechcraft B-1900Ds.

The airline also announced fares starting as low as Rs 1,420 for the Ahmedabad-Bhavnagar flight and Rs 1,699 for a one-way trip to Surat from Bhavnagar.

"We are proud to launch two more new routes in Gujarat within two months since the launch of our operations," Air Odisha managing director and GSEC executive director Shaishav Shah said on the proposed new routes launch.

"We take pride in becoming a part of the Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik (Udan) scheme, which is a great initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi with a vision to make flying more affordable for the common man and also fuel economic growth," he said.
