After an eight-month-long wait, the Hindon Airport is ready for the first flight on October 11. The first flight from Hindon will be from the Heritage Aviation Company. CEO of Heritage Aviation Private Limited, Rohit Mathur said, “A 9-seater plane will take off from Pithoragarh to Hindon at 11:30 am, and it will leave for Pithoragarh from Hindon at 1 pm. Thursday will be an off day. After Pithoragarh, we are also trying to start operations on Shimla route.” The Hindon airport had been inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on March 8, since then there had been many assumptions about the first flight from it. The starting of flight service from Hindon will greatly reduce the burden on the New Delhi airport and will also enable passengers from the western Uttar Pradesh region to save time.
