Here’s good news for all those who had to cancel their international vacation plans owing to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) scare! This summer, you can see and experience the glorious India that has caught firangs’ fancy since time immemorial.
The Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) has flagged off the first-ever thrice a week flight from Indore to Kishangarh (Ajmer) in Rajasthan. The MoCA awarded the Indore-Kishangarh route during the UDAN 3 bidding process to Star Air. With the commencement of this route, the Ministry has operationalized 268 routes under the UDAN scheme.
Under RCS-UDAN, Star Air is already operating direct flights from Belagavi to Indore and will now extend the same route till Rajasthan. The approximate distance between Indore and Kishangarh is around 550 kilometers and people had to spend more than 10 hours to reach Kishangarh from Indore by road.
However, with the commencement of flight operations on this route, people can take a one-hour flight and travel at ease and visit the famous Nine Planets temple, Ajmer Sharif Dargah, Pushkar Lake, Phool Mahal Palace, Roopangarh Fort, etc. Furthermore, Kishangarh is also known as the Marble City of India and is a big market of red chilies.
Until now, there was no direct flight service available between Belagavi and Kishangarh, and to cover the distance of almost 1,550 kilometers between the cities, travelers had to suffer more than a 24-hour journey by bus or train. With the inauguration of this route, people can now travel between Belagavi and Kishangarh in just three hours.
