To provide the facility of air travel to the common man, a scheme named Udaan has been started. Now the government has launched its next phase i.e. UDAN 5.1. With the help of this, remote areas will also be connected under this scheme and they will get a chance to travel by helicopter.
The number of helicopters will increase in India
It is hoped that the use of helicopters will be encouraged with the introduction of this scheme of the government. A large number of passengers are also expected to come. In such a situation, there can be an increase in the existing number of helicopters in India. Currently there are about 280 civilian helicopters in India, which are used in many areas. So far 46 helicopter routes have been operationalized under the previous round of the scheme, covering several hilly and northeastern states.
What is a flight plan
Ude Desh ka Nagrig Yojana was started in 2016. It has been started by the Ministry of Aviation for 10 years. Its main purpose is to cover and connect far flung areas. Along with this, connectivity has to be increased even to small towns. Under this scheme, a target has been set to develop 100 airports by 2024 and this scheme has been completed in 5 years.
What is the goal
Under this scheme, passengers have to travel by air at an affordable cost. Also people’s time has to be saved. Along with increasing connectivity to far-flung areas, the benefit of low-budget air travel is to be given.
