“In his reply received on January 26, the Union minister stated that flights to various sectors will commence soon. In ministry communiqué, it is stated that under the UDAN 5.0, the routes connecting Adampur to Delhi NCR, Nanded, Bengaluru, Kolkata, and Goa have been awarded to the selected airline operators and the airlines concerned may commence operations in the near future,” he said.

Shergill said they also demanded the minister for starting a direct flight from Adampur to Banaras, the birthplace of Guru Ravidas and holy place of Kashi Vishwanath Temple, to which Scindia has confirmed that the request has been shared with all scheduled domestic airlines for favourable consideration.

“This is a positive development, as air connectivity from Adampur (Jalandhar) and Halwara (Ludhiana), will not only improve Punjab’s connectivity but also boost economy, tourism and trade,” he said.
