Rajasthan, the land of Maharajas known for its incredible destinations is a state with huge landmass. Thanks to the excellent connectivity among the cities of this magnificent sate that it does not trouble us much.
Rajasthan is that state which is not just connected by the roads; it is a state with one of the greatest intra-state air connectivity. Yes, the state of Rajasthan has connected its cities by the means of air transport better than most.
Boasting of its unparalleled intra-state air connectivity, a most recent development was done in the capital city- Jaipur. A new aerial route between Jaipur and Sri Ganganagar has been established and is now functional. On 10th of July, CM Vasundhara Raje herself flagged off the first flight on the route from Sanganer airport of Jaipur. Two flights every day from both the cities will take off, 7am and 4pm from Sr Ganganagar and 9am and 6pm from Jaipur giving a boost to the tourism industry in the state.
But it does not end here. CM Vasundhara Raje plans on bringing in more cities in the air connectivity plan in near future. Seems like being the best is still not enough for Rajasthan!
With the state’s stamping expansion of the air connectivity between the cities has added one more to its bag. The nine-seater Supreme Airlines took off from Kota airport fully loaded at 7:15am for Delhi, landing safely and successfully at 8:30am, covering the distance in one and a half hour.
Since its inception, the Kota Airport which was established by Ex Royals of Kota, prior to Independence had landing facility only for VIP charter planes till August last year. Kota being one of the most important educational and industrial hub gets a number of students, industrialists and tourists from all over. Regular efforts made by the State Government to promote tourism and other related sectors has helped in connecting small cities through roads, railways and air, thus introducing direct connectivity between Kota, Sawai Madhopur and Delhi.
The schedule of the flight is as follow – it will take from Jaipur airport at 6 am and will reach Kota at 6:45am and will depart from Kota airport for Delhi at 7 am and reach Delhi by 8:30 am. On the return leg, the aircraft would depart from New Delhi for Kota at 5 pm and reach Kota at 6:30pm and later fly from Kota airport at 6:45 pm for Jaipur to reach by 7:30 pm. This one day trip from Kota to Delhi is said to approximately cost Rs. 5,499 and will fly six days a week from Monday to Saturday. Hope to see the air services extend from Kota to other cities in the coming months to other cities like Indore and Ahmedabad.
The Civil airport of Jaisalmer is now buzzing with passengers as the much awaited air services are going to start from November 1, 2016. All the preparations have been done for Bikaner and Jaisalmer to Delhi and other cities and even booking counter has been opened at Naal airport.
‘Supreme Airlines’ will be starting services between Jaipur and Jaisalmer and with air connectivity; the tourists will have more options to commute intra state. The plane will take off from Jaipur at 11.30 am and reach Jaisalmer at 1.30 pm and will depart from Jaisalmer at 2 pm and reach Jaipur at 4 pm.
