Responding to the demand raised by BJP National Spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill during his meeting with Union Civil Aviation Minister J.M.Scindia on January 16, 2024, Scindia has replied to Shergill that his request has been considered and flights from Adampur to various sectors will commence soon. Divulging further details, Shergill said that Scindia has now replied to him through a letter dated January 26, 2024, that under the UDAN 5.0, the routes connecting Adampur to Delhi NCR, Nanded, Bangalore, Kolkata, and Goa have been awarded to the Selected Airline Operators and the concerned airlines may commence operations in the near future.
Giving this information in a release issued today, Shergill said that during his meeting with Scindia; keeping in view the faith and sentiments of all communities, he had handed over the request letter to the Minister for starting a direct flight from Adampur to Banaras, the birthplace of Guru Ravidas Ji and holy place of Kashi Vishwanath Temple.

Shergill said that on this also, Scindia has confirmed that his request has been shared with all the scheduled domestic airlines for favorable consideration.
Shergill said that this is a positive development, as air connectivity from Adampur (Jalandhar) and Halwara (Ludhiana), will not only improve Punjab’s connectivity but will also boost economy, tourism and trade. Shergill thanked Scindia for positively considering his demands.
