PM Modi launches first three flights under UDAN scheme 28.4.2017 DNA: Opinion
The government's much-awaited plan to provide low-cost air connectivity took off on Thursday with Prime Minister Narendra Modi launching the first three flights under the regional connectivity scheme (RCS) called Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik (UDAN). Flagging off the first flight from Shimla to New Delhi, the PM said, "I want to see people who wear Hawaii chappal (rubber slippers) in a hawai jahaaz (aircraft). Earlier we used to believe that air travel was meant only for rajahs and maharajahs. This is the thinking that we need to change." Modi added that the Delhi-Shimla flight, with a fare of Rs 2,036 per seat, will be cheaper than a taxi ride. The scheme that was announced in October 2016 seeks to popularise regional air travel on short sectors by capping fares at Rs 2,500 per hour. The flight from Shimla will be operated by Air India's subsidiary, Alliance Air five times a week. Apart from the Delhi-Shimla flight, the prime minister also simultaneously flagged off RCS flights on the Kadapa-Hyderabad and ...

UDAN: What are the chances of it taking off? 27.4.2017 DNA: Popular News
The UDAN or Regional Air Connectivity Scheme (RCS) launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday attempts to meet the twin goals of connectivity and affordability. It attempts to connect smaller towns like Shimla, Kadappa, Nanded, Bhavnagar, Bhatinda, Gwalior, Durgapur and Jaisalmer with bigger cities. The scheme also has a subsidy component by capping the airfare for a one hour journey of 500 km on a fixed wing aircraft at Rs 2,500. It connects 27 currently served airports, 12 underserved airports, and 31 unserved airports, of which 24 airports are in the West, 17 in the North, 11 in South, 12 in East and six in the North-East. This is an impressive geographical spread. If the scheme succeeds, civil aviation will finally succeed in catching up with rail and road connectivity at the margins. However, the scheme has not found too many takers. Apart from Air India, which is the government’s favourite workhorse in plying uneconomical routes, only SpiceJet has signed on among the established private ...
