INDORE: India's first intra-state air taxi service connecting the cities of Indore, Bhopal and Jabalpur will take off from October 5, once again. The joint venture, promoted by Venutra Airconnect and Madhya Pradesh Tourism Department, launched last month will add charter services and connect new tourist destinations soon.

Making the announcement at a press meet on Saturday, Ventura Airconnect MD Uttam Kumar Bose said that Indore-Bhopal and Indore-Jabalpur flight will start regularly from October 5. The service will be available in the morning and evening on weekdays. The service will not be available on weekends.

Bose said the company is also starting charter service soon, under which one can book the charter flight after 6.30 pm on weekdays or on Sundays. "We have been receiving several queries about charter flight service and so we have decided to launch charter service as well."

The company is also planning to connect tourist destinations of the state with air taxi. "State government has asked us to connect tourist destinations of the state with air taxi. This is expected to give boost to tourism in state," said Bose adding that they are also going to connect cities like Rewa and Satna.

To make the ticket booking process convenient the company is engaging around 160 travel agencies across the state. Besides, one can book tickets on company's website or either at the airport. About the objection of Air force about service to Gwalior, he said efforts were on to resolve the issue and it may take some more time to resume air taxi service to Gwalior. The company has plans to acquire 20 more aircraft in next three years, said Bose.
