Flight from Adampur airport to Nanded Sahib begins

Chandigarh: The flight service from Adampur Airport has commenced on Sunday, marking the first flight from Adampur to Nanded Sahib after nearly four years, departing at 1.30 pm.

The inaugural flight includes a stop at Hindon Airport before proceeding to Nanded Sahib. Doaba is widely regarded as an NRI hub, making the launch of flights from Adampur Airport particularly advantageous for them.

Now, travelers will no longer endure a 9-hour journey to Delhi; instead, they can complete the trip in just one hour via the aforementioned flight route. Economy class fares, including taxes, are approximately Rs 2300, as per available information.

The central government deployed staff at Adampur Airport approximately two weeks ago, prompting the commencement of flight operations. Flight routes connecting Hindon, Nanded Sahib, Bengaluru, Kolkata, and Goa have been designated from this airport.

Adampur Airport was inaugurated following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s program on March 2, during which several airports across India were opened. Former Jalandhar MP Sushil Kumar Rinku met Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia to advocate for this initiative.

Following their meeting and Rinku’s submission of a letter on behalf of Jalandhar residents, the airport’s operationalization and the proposal to name it after Sri Guru Ravidas Maharaj were subsequently approved.
