A pilot project to connect the country’s top tourism destinations is expected to take off in November by Feeder airline services. The Golden Triangle — Delhi-Agra-Jaipur — will be the first tourism circuit to be covered under this project.
Three 16 or 18-seat jets would be procured on lease and introduced on the Golden Triangle circuit. IndiGo Airlines has been requested to operate the services. The feeder airline services may be expanded in the south, including Mysore, if the service on Delhi-Agra-Jaipur route gets good response. Compared to heli-tourism, feeder airline service is economical, with an extended carrying capacity.
One of the reasons for proposing feeder airline services is to provide connectivity to tourists to destinations at their convenience.
