Shimla, April 27: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday flagged off the maiden flight under the government’s ambitious UDAN or ‘Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik’ scheme, aimed at stimulating regional connectivity through a market-based mechanism.

The inaugural flight – launched by PM Modi from Shimla – was on the Shimla-Delhi route. Under the scheme, airfare for an hour’s journey (approximately 500 km) on a fixed wing aircraft or for a 30-minute journey on a helicopter would be capped at Rs. 2,500, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has said.

He also inaugurated flights on the Kadapa-Hyderabad and the Nanded-Hyderabad sectors through a video conference. The prime minister announced that the next flight to take off under the scheme would operate on the Mumbai-Nanded sector.

“Our aim is that Hawaii chappal wale log bhi hawaijahaz ke sair kar saken, (people in rubber slippers should also fly),” he said, while launching the regional connectivity scheme (RCS).

“UDAN makes air travel accessible to a wider range of citizens and enhances connectivity with many more airports across India,” PM Modi tweeted.

This marked Prime Minister Modi’s first visit to Shimla after assuming office. The airport at Jubbarhatti, which is 22 km from Shimla and is located 2,196 metres above sea-level, was shut for scheduled flights since September 6, 2012.

The UDAN Scheme, a key component of the National Civil Aviation Policy (NCAP), was released on June 15 last year.

The Civil Aviation Ministry has already awarded 128 routes connecting 70 airports to five airlines under the UDAN scheme: Alliance Air, SpiceJet, Air Deccan, Air Odisha and Turbo Megha. On each flight, 50 per cent of the seats would have a cap of Rs. 2,500 per seat/hour. These flights would connect airports spread across over 20 states and union territories.
