DRM HWH Dr. R Badrinarayan promised to strengthen railway connectivity in it's home state of West Bengal. Only Howrah and it's suburban stations are well connected while others have no proper direct connectivity. There is no smooth connectivity between South Bengal stations like Kharagpur, Asansol, Purulia, Adra, Medinipur and Bankura with North Bengal ones like Malda Town, Jalpaiguri, Coach-Behar, Siliguri etc. A proposal has been sent to the board to look into the matter.
Special trains will be plying soon between these stations. Reviewing the demand, further actions will be taken.
KOLKATA: A little over six months after Air India withdrew its operation in the Kolkata-Durgapur-Delhi route, Zoom Air, a Delhi-based airlines, starts its operation in the same routes seven days a week from Sunday. Kaji Nazrul Islam Airport (Andal) will also act as the regional hub of the company.
Interestingly, GoAir and In diGo have proposed to operate flights from KNIA, but the proposals are yet to take final shape. Bhutan and Bangladesh Airlines are also interested as reported earlier. Air India has withdrawn its services but talks are going on
dAY after tomorrow
Zoom Air will begin commercial operations on the Delhi-Kolkata-Durgapur-Delhi sector from February 15 with plans to connect Mumbai and Hyderabad to the steel town later in April.
Thank God PVT airline operators are helping IR ACIII, ACII paxs from possibility of extending the Flexifares to all the express trains! Luxury Bus operators along the Rajdhani/ Shatabdi routes should be a happy.
Zoom air, new player in the market. Seems Airlines have succeeded in encashing this exodus after this the implementation of this idiotic surge pricing.
I have a question regarding Private airlines that being private means what exactly. Like one difference noticed is they can booked from pvt own website. Not on sites like mmt EMT etc
except Air india group all are private airlines in india. You can book then in any website. But as of now zoom air not tie up to other websites. Will be available in MMT,yatra, Clear trip soon.
I think this airline going to run under Regional Air connectivity policy
Now bookings opened. Kolakata-Durgapur 850 rs
Ccu-rdp fares INR850 only, Delhi-INR2850 only
No, even Pvt. Airlines tickets can also be booked using MMT or Cleartrip or Yatra.com. This Zoom Air is a new company so their might be a possibility that still they haven't done any collaboration with any travel site like MMT or yatra that's why it's ticket isn't available over their site.
As per the news text I have read they don't cone under regional airline or operate under Udann scheme. They mentioned scheduled carrier.
A scheduled carrier can get sops under regional air connectivity like Tru jet getting from AP govt.
The share holding and investment , management is promoted by a group of people who own and run that particular organization is called private. As being new operator they may not have tied with e ticketing yet.
