While inaugurating the

FlyBig Airlines’ 

Gondia-Hyderabad flight through a video conference on Sunday, Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia emphasised on the need to connect Indore with smaller cities. He called the dedication of flight a beginning of the process. 

Scindia said, “Today, we have connected Madhya Pradesh with Maharashtra and Hyderabad. Apart from big cities, Indore needs to be connected with other smaller cities. Indore and Gondia share old relationships and it is our responsibility to bring these cities closer. So, this is the beginning.”

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was also virtually present at the launch event. 

The Union Minister said that Indore is connected with as many as 21 cities at present while it was connected with mere 12 cities in the past. “In the coming days, we are planning for smaller planes and helicopters to connect each city across the country till the last mile,” he added.

FlyBig Airlines’ CEO had earlier informed that the Indore-Gondia-Hyderabad flight services will be run under UDAN RCS (Ude Desh Ka Aam Naagrik- Regional Connectivity Scheme) with a reasonable fare.

The Civil Aviation Minister informed that the government will scrap the restrictions imposed on global connectivity from March 27 onwards. However, the domestic limitations have been removed already on October 18, 2021.

Madhya Pradesh minister Tulsi Silavat, MPs Shankar Lalwani and Sumitra Mahajan were also present at the launched event.
