The Air Odisha Aviation Pvt. Ltd (AOAPL) has decided to start an inter-State flight service from August 15. The company has obtained permission of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to commence flights from Bhubaneswar to three cities, Ranchi, Raipur and Nagpur. As there are no direct flight services from Bhubaneswar to these three cities, the initiative of the Air Odisha would come as a big help for thepassengers, said its chief Santosh Pani. Earlier this year, the State Government had terminated its Air Services Operation Agreement (AOA) with the Air Odisha Aviation Pvt. Ltd (AOAPL) for intra-State air service.
