Modi government has launched their ‘Ude Desh Ka Aam Naagrik: Udaan Scheme’. This is Modi government’s regional connectivity scheme that is an endeavour to make common people fly. With this scheme air travel will be made affordable for common people.
The Ministry of Civil Aviation has launched this important step targeting the common people of India. This is a fresh scheme which will have flights connecting regional airways at affordable prices so that the common man could benefit from it. This is the first scheme of its type in the world. The government intends to fly 300 million domestic passengers by the year 2022.
The first flight under PM Modi’s Udaan Scheme will take off in January 2017. The government officials revealed that stakeholders have carefully created the entire scheme after having several thoughtful conversations on a wider level. The government is expecting a good response, which would lead to the success of the Udaan Scheme.
A cap of Rs.2,500 will be fixed for one hour commercial flight for a distance up to 500 kms and for 30 minutes travel by helicopters.
The Minister of State for Civil Aviation, Shri Jayant Sinha told that this scheme (yojana) aims to encourage the common man to fly. This scheme ensures concession, connectivity and development.
According to the Modi government, the Udaan Scheme is a profitable affair for both the stakeholders and the citizens. Citizens are likely to get concessions on flight fares, improved connectivity and more opportunities for work. The central government will also be able to benefit from regional air connectivity through expansion of market and tourism opportunities.
Similarly, the airlines providing their services will have more routes to explore and will get an increase in the number of passengers who travel every day. This could be a beneficial prospect for startup airlines as well.
