Visakhapatnam facing crunch of Domestic flights

According to sources Vishakhapatnam, the financial capital of Andhra Pradesh, is currently facing a crunch of domestic flights. Airlines have been canceling several of its flights in the last few months, but the pace picked up in the last few weeks. Meanwhile the air passengers of 'Steel City' are shocked to learn about the huge drop in air services.

Visakhapatnam facing crunch of Domestic flights

Reportedly the last few years, Vizag had seen a big jump in air traffic but the airline companies are taking a loss to run their services. Alliance Air, a subsidiary of Air india, has recently stopped its services from Vishakhapatnam after the government failed to fund the airline as part of regional connectivity scheme. Furthermore the airline had to take this decision as the government failed to clear the arrears of Rs 23 Crores.

Moreover on top of it, leading private airline Indigo too has dropped its services from Vizag to Kochi, kolkata and 2 services to Bangalore. Perhaps some passengers have recently complained that IndiGo recently stopped selling tickets to metro cities like delhi, mumbai, Chennai, and hyderabad too. Apparently the Air Travelers Association sees two reasons for this situation in Vizag one being a shortage of air carriers and other is policy followed by the previous government. Hence considering the plight of air travelers, the Parliament member of Steel City wrote to a letter to Union Civil Aviation Minister to take a quick action in this regard.
