Air Asia set to launch 3 flights from state capital


Bhubaneswar: Air Asia is all set to launch domestic operations from the City. The Malaysia-based airline has proposed a schedule for three flights from the Temple City, said sources.

While authorities at Biju Patnaik International Airport (BPIA) have confirmed receiving the proposal and schedule from Air Asia, a final call on operations will be taken after receiving mandatory clearance from Director-General Civil Aviation (DGCA). “A schedule has been proposed by Air Asia for operation on three routes – Bhubaneswar-Kolkata, Bhubaneswar-Bengaluru and Kolkata to Bengaluru via Bhubaneswar. We are working on the schedule and awaiting necessary clearances,” BPIA Director S C Hota said.

The BPIA has also proposed to the Airports Authority of India (AAI) and DGCA to do away with baggage tagging for departures from the City.
