Bengaluru: Star Air, a regional commuter airline which has recently completed one year of operations, is all set to add another feather in its cap. The airline, on continuing its endeavour to connect the unconnected is ready to add one more destination to its travel chart. It is scheduled to start its flight services between Indore, Madhya Pradesh, and Kishangarh (Ajmer), Rajasthan, from 16 March.
Rajasthan will be the seventh Indian state where Star Air will provide its flight services under the RCS-UDAN scheme. Interestingly, Indore and Kishangarh, which are almost 550 km apart, have no direct flight connectivity till date. After the launch of this service, travel time will reduce to 1 hour.
“For many decades, people of Belagavi, Karnataka, also aspired to benefit from affordable and swift transportation services to Kishangarh (Ajmer). Considering people’s demand, the management of Star Air has further decided to extend the benefits of its Kishangarh service to a larger number of people living across the geography of Belagavi by providing flight services between Belagavi and Kishangarh (Ajmer) with one stop (via Indore) from 16 March,” said Shrenik Ghodawat, MD, Star Air.
As of now, there is no direct flight service available between Belagavi and Kishangarh. Once this route starts, people can travel the 1,550 km between Belagavi and Kishangarh in 3 hours.
According to Star Air, it is expected that millions of people from South & West Maharashtra, North & West Karnataka, and many districts adjacent to Indore would benefit with this service.
Star Air, on 18 February 2020 started sales for its upcoming Indore-Kishangarh, and Belagavi-Kishangarh (with 1 stop, via Indore) routes with introductory prices of Rs 2,799 and Rs 5,398 respectively. Star Air will provide its flight services for these routes thrice in a week (Monday/Tuesday/Thursday) to begin with.
