Hardeep Singh Puri – Union Minister:
Delighted to flag off the inaugural Alliance Air flight between Delhi & Bareilly along with my colleague Sh Santosh Gangwar Ji & UP Minister Sh Nand Gopal Gupta Ji.
The 4 days a week flight will provide much needed air connectivity from Bareilly at an affordable fare of just ₹1954
With this UDAN flight, Bareilly becomes the 8th operational airport in Uttar Pradesh & 56th airport in the country to be made operational under UDAN.
UP is also the first state in the country to have its own Civil Aviation Policy.
In befitting tribute to Nari Shakti the Delhi-Bareilly flight was operated by an all-woman crew while women staff handled ATC, flight dispatch, security & ground operations.
Alliance Air has operated women powered flights in all four regions of the country today.
