Indigo to start flight to Rajahmundry soon

Visakhapatnam: The first airport advisory meeting after the formation of new government was conducted in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday. Visakhapatnam MP MVV Satyanarayana, MLA Ganbabu and the other committee members attended the meeting.
Member of the airport advisory committee, K Vijay Mohan said, “There is a Indigo evening flight soon starting from Visakhapatnam via Rajahmundry to Bengaluru from September 15. In all probability, Air India has also been given a slot to operate services from Visakhapatnam to Vijayawada from mid-September. The scheduled arrival from Vijayawada to Visakhapatnam would be at 08.55 pm and departure from Visakhapatnam would be at 9.20 pm which will reach Vijayawada at 10.20 pm.
During the discussion, the members discussed the restrictions imposed by the Indian Navy on slots for civilian flights which is hindering the introduction of new flights. The members claimed that the Navy has restricted the maximum number of civil movements per hour from 07:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
O Naresh Kumar, member of the airport advisory committee, said, “As per a letter from the Navy, there are only two slots for civilian movements out of the total 12 slots from 07:00 to 08:00 pm and only three slots in both 8:00-9:00 pm and the 9:00-10:00 pm time limits.”
“The slots for civilian movements are already full and there is no scope for new flights to come in,” Naresh Kumar added.
