PM Modi's UDAN project takes off; one-hour flights capped at Rs 2,500

The government on Thursday announced the list of airlines that will be connecting unserved airports in the country. 50 per cent of seats on every flight will cost Rs 2,500 per seat under the UDAN scheme. 
 
 
This will be applicable for flights where the distance is less than 500 km or one-hour. Over 45 unserved and under-served airports would be connected under the scheme - UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik) that seeks to make flying more affordable.
 
 
India's domestic air passenger traffic grew at a record breaking rate of 23 per cent in 2016 -  amongst the highest in the world.
