Night flight operations begin at Jammu Airport

A much-awaited facility of night flight operations at the Jammu Airport was inaugurated by Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha yesterday. Lt Governor virtually flagged off the first late-night flight of Go Air from Jammu to Delhi to mark the occasion. Mr Sinha said that the facility will give relief to the passengers and in turn, will have a long term positive impact on the economy of the region.

 

Lt Governor said, it will also provide much-needed flexibility for residents of the Jammu division to travel to the national capital and beyond. The move will also benefit the farmers of the region as the UT government has recently inked an MoU with Go Air for subsidised air transportation of vegetables and fruits from Jammu and Kashmir. Lt Governor acknowledged the support of the Central government and different agencies for coordination and ensuring the fulfillment of various procedural and on-ground facilities imperative for the start of night operations.
