Amaravati: Air India flight services will be resumed from October 27 in Andhra Pradesh, Air India chairman Ashwani Lohani wrote on Tuesday in a letter to YSR Congress Party MP Vijayasai Reddy. Lohani further added that it will also extend its service to other major cities in the state.
The new services will be made available on routes - Vijayawada-Tirupati-Vizag, Vijayawada-Shirdi, and Vijayawada-Bangalore.
The government-carrier is currently operating three flights a week between Delhi-Vijayawada and announced to operate the same between Delhi-Vijayawada-Tirupati-Vijayawada-Delhi from October 27.
After Air India canceled several flights operating in Andhra Pradesh in different routes, last July, the parliamentary standing committee chairman met Lohani and requested him to resume all services. The YSRCP leader also wrote a letter to the chairman to start new flights on various routes.
Vijayasai Reddy has thanked Air India for its decision which will be convenient for passengers traveling within the state.
