Do you want to fly so here is the good news for you all. The cost of the flight ticket is just for Rs 1. Air Deccan, India’s first domestic low-cost airline is all set to restart its services. It starts its second innings scheduled from December 22 onwards. As per the reports, the airline offers the flight ticket for Rs 1 for the few lucky members.
India’s first domestic low-cost airline Air Deccan is founded by G.R. Gopinath in 2003. In 2008 the Air Deccan airlines merge with the Vijay Mallya’s Kingfisher Airlines. Later they stopped the services due to the financial problems in 2012.
In a recent interview with an English channel, G.R. Gopinath said, the Air Deccan airlines is all set to start its second innings. The services will starts at the end of the month from four bases — Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Shillong. On December 22 the first Air Deccan airlines will begin to fly to Mumbai from Nashik.
To attract the passengers we are providing the ticket for reasonable prises. The airlines are charging the Rs 2,500 per person under the government’s Udan scheme for an hour’s flight to Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities where the government is providing a subsidy for flying. But the Air Deccan airlines will charge Rs 1,400 for a 40-minutes Nashik-Mumbai flight.
In the initial days, some of the lucky passengers will get the flight ticket for Rs 1, Gopinath said. By the month of January 2018, the airline is planning for the second in Delhi. This will connect the city with Agra, Shimla, Ludhiana, Pantnagar, Dehradun and Kullu.
Airlines also start another two planes which fly to Jamshedpur, Rourkela, Durgapur, Bagdogra, Burnpur, Cooch Behar, Agartala, and from Shillong to Imphal, Dimapur, Aizawl and Agartala. Gopinath said that he would like to expand faster but the problem is lack of slots and parking at the congested Mumbai and Delhi airports. But there is no complete clarity on the schedule of Air Deccan airlines.
