Bhubaneswar MP Aparajita Sarangi tweeted about direct flight service between Bhubaneswar and Surat today.
In a big relief to Odisha people working in Surat, the Union Civil Aviation Ministry will start its direct flights between Bhubaneswar and Surat from 1st January 2020.
The Bhubaneswar MP said the flight operations will start from January 1, 2020 (three days a week). She also thanked to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri for the approval.
Earlier, Aparajita Sarangi along with Surat MP Darshana Jardosh had met Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri July 22 and requested him to start direct flights between Bhubaneswar and Surat.
Last year, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had also urged the Civil Aviation ministry to introduce direct flight services between Odisha’s capital city and Surat citing that a sizeable population of non-resident Odias reside in Gujarat.
