India to provide Rs 205-crore support for rural aviation scheme: Jayant Sinha


NEW DELHI: India’s junior aviation minister Jayant Sinha said on Thursday the government will provide Rs 205 crore ($31.57 million) financial support to boost airline travel between smaller cities.

India launched the Regional Connectivity Scheme to get more people flying in what is already the world’s fastest growing aviation market. Under the scheme, the government has capped fares and is offering incentives to attract airlines to fly less traversed routes.
