PM Narendra Modi, as a part of his government’s efforts to enhance air connectivity in India, launched UDAN or Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik. Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapati had said that this scheme is an effort towards making regional air connectivity a reality, and making it convenient and affordable.

And today PM Narendra Modi inaugurated world’s cheapest domestic air travel scheme. He announced the first round of regional flights under UDAN scheme between Shimla and Delhi, and the service is being provided at a rate of Rs 2500 per hour.

The inaugural flights are launched between Delhi-Shimla, Nanded-Hyderabad and Kadapa-Hyderabad. In a series of tweets, PM Modi explained the scheme.
