Mysuru, June 12:- Flight operations between Mysuru and Chennai will commence from September 2017 with lower flight fares.

Lok Sabha member Pratap Simha had requested the Union Ministry of Civil Aviations to launch flight between Mysuru and Chennai under UDAN Scheme. The Karnataka and Tamil Nadu governments have made agreements with the Airports Authority of India, Air Odisha and Turbo Megha Airways.

The flight ticket is expected to be priced at Rs 2,500 per hour’s journey. It will be applied for a distance of 500 km.

Meanwhile, the authorities have promised to introduce connecting flights from Mysuru to other parts of the country in the days to come.

It may be recalled that this is the fourth time air services are being introduced from Mandakalli Airport. The service was first introduced in March 2010. Kingfisher Airways introduced the service between Mysuru and Bengaluru. It stopped the service in October 2011, due to poor response. Spice Jet introduced flights in January 2013 and stopped the operations in October 2014.

Alliance Air, a subsidiary of Air India, which launched its service in September 2015, operated only for three months due to low occupancy.
