The government’s UDAN initiative’s motto is to offer flight operations to the remote corners of the country to make air travel possible for an average Indian. Following the same, Odisha’s CM Naveen Patnaik today flagged off the first-ever flight to the newly-inaugurated Rourkela Airport from Biju Patnaik International Airport, Bhubaneswar. The chief minister of the state stated that the new air route will help Odisha’s citizens with improved air connectivity. He also expressed his thanks and appreciation to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his support to improve connectivity to the hinterland of Odisha under UDAN.
