Scindia said the new heliports will come up in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. They will be in Sanjoli in Shimla, Sase in Manali, Mandi and Baddi (all in Himachal Pradesh) and Haldwani and Almora (Uttarakhand). Thirty of the new UDAN routes will also become operational by the end of October. He said flights to Sharjah and Dubai will resume from Chandigarh next month.

NEW DELHI, Sept 10: Five new airports, six new heliports and 50 new UDAN routes under the regional connectivity scheme will be launched in 100 days, Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia announced on Thursday.

Scindia said the six new heliports will come up in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. They will be in Sanjoli in Shimla, Sase in Manali, Mandi and Baddi (all in Himachal Pradesh) and Haldwani and Almora (Uttarakhand).

The airports will be at Keshod (Gujarat), Deogarh (Jharkhand), Gondia (Maharashtra), Sindhudurg (Maharashtra) and Kushinagar (Uttar Pradesh).

Thirty of the new UDAN routes will become operational by the end of October. Out of these, six routes will be operated by Alliance Air, four by IndiGo, eight by FlyBig, four by SpiceJet and eight new routes will be operated by Star Air, Scindia told a press conference in New Delhi on Thursday.

The Minister also announced that the Government is planning to establish aircraft leasing companies in India.

On the upcoming Jewer International Airport in Noida, Scindia said it will cost Rs 30,000. Every year 1.2 crore passenger capacity will be operated and by phase 4 the passenger capacity will expand up to 7 crore.

Under new air bubble arrangements, flights to Sharjah and Dubai will resume from the Chandigarh International Airport in the first week of October. Flights to Sharjah and Dubai in the UAE were launched in 2016 when the Chandigarh airport got the international tag. Sharjah flight was operating twice a week and the Dubai flight flew on all days except Sundays. However, these flights were grounded in March last year because of the pandemic.

Chandigarh will have direct connectivity to Jodhpur and Ranchi from next month.

Meanwhile, IndiGo launched new direct flights on the Gwalior- Indore-Delhi route and Air India resumed its Indore-Dubai direct flight.

SpiceJet is launching 14 new flights. Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, SpiceJet, in a statement said, "In line with our commitment to enhance regional connectivity and put the smaller cities on the country's aviation map, SpiceJet is launching 14 new flights, out of which as many as 12 – Bhavnagar-Delhi, Bhavnagar-Surat, Gwalior-Jaipur, Kishangarh (Ajmer)- Mumbai, Pune-Tirupati and Varanasi-Dehradun are industry first flights."
