According to a tentative programme, Singh would arrive at the airport at Gannavaram near Vijayawada at around 11 am and would go on an aerial survey of the flood-hit Krishna district.
Singh would then come to Begumpet airport in Hyderabad and proceed to an aerial survey of the other flood-affected districts of Kurnool, Mahabubnagar and Nalgonda districts.
Chief Minister K Rosaiah would accompany Singh during the aerial survey, Revenue Minister D Prasada Rao told reporters Wednesday night.
The prime minister would return to Begumpet airport at around 12.45 pm and participate in a review meeting, he said.
At around 2 pm, Singh would leave for aerial survey of the flood-hit areas in Karnataka. He would return to Begumpet airport and leave for New Delhi from there, Rao said.
Meanwhile, the flood situation in the state was returning to normalcy. Flood water remained in only some villages in Krishna and Guntur districts and the water would recede fast, Rao said. There were no fresh deaths on Wednesday and the death toll stood at 63.
