AHMEDABAD: Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani on Saturday launched the inaugural flight of Bhubaneswar-based airline Air Odisha here.
The flight has been launched under the Centre's Ude Desh ke Aam Nagrik (UDAN) scheme. It connects Mundra with Gujarat's Ahmedabad.
Speaking to the media on the occasion, Rupani said that the project is the fulfilment of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's dream.
"UDAN aims to provide air facility to the common man through regional connectivity," he said.
Air Odisha started its services as a non-scheduled operator in November 2012.
Earlier this month, the airline was granted the flying permit by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to launch flights under UDAN.
