Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia today flagged off the direct flight service between Bhubaneswar and Jaipur via virtual mode. Railway Ministers Ashwini Vaishnaw and Dharmendra Pradhan were present on the occasion.

On the occasion, Scindia said, “I am fortunate to inaugurate flight services from one of Independent India’s first planned cities, Bhubaneswar. I would like to thank Dharmendra Pradhan and Ashwini Vaishnaw who play a vital role in the commencement of this direct flight service.”

The direct connections between the Temple City Bhubaneshwar and the Pink City Jaipur, will strengthen inter and intra-regional connectivity and promote trade, commerce, as well as tourism in the eastern state, said Sanjay Kumar, Chief Strategy and Revenue Officer of IndiGo.

The introduction of these direct connections will not only bolster the airline’s domestic network, but also cut down the travel time between the two states by more than 50%, he added.
