Haj pilgrims would now be able to avail a direct Air India flight from Raja Bhoj Airport in Bhopal to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. This was stated by Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel in a letter to Madhya Pradesh Congress President Suresh Pachouri yesterday.

The possibility of operating international flights from the Raja Bhoj Airport has increased as the length of the runway strip has been increased to 9,000 feet. Pachouri had earlier written to Patel, seeking introduction of direct air-link to Jeddah for Haj pilgrims.
