The Devi Ahilyabai Holkar Airport in the city of Indore becomes the base operating centre of new regional airlines that is to kickstart services from November 15. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has provided the new venture with a clearance after inspection, and the airlines has already started to work on the set up and maintenance for the same at the airport premises. The maiden aircraft, imported from Australia, will reach Indore in a week.
New Airlines to take-off from Indore
For the first time, a regional airline kickstarting operations has picked Indore as its centre operating station, unlike other enterprises that prefer the metro cities of Mumbai and Delhi. The new airline has been allotted with night parking space, at the Indore Airport, which can accommodate up to 2 aircraft units. Besides this, Indigo airline aircraft also hold the night parking at the Ahilyabai Holkar Airport.
The addition of this new venture to the already existing 6 flights to and fro from Indore will assist the city in creating greater connectivity, running on expected new routes.
The Officials at the Indore Airport are also incubating the launch of direct flights to Bhopal and Jabalpur, within the state, and then to Ahmedabad as well. The final schedule regarding the same will be declared by the Airport Authorities post the clearance of required formalities and permissions.
