An advisory group meeting, led by the Minister of Civil Aviation Jyotiraditya M Scindia was conducted on Tuesday with key representatives from the airline industry to discuss services and performance of airlines.

To bolster the connectivity of tier-2 and tier-3 cities like Ayodhya and Surat with international destinations, Scindia asked airlines to submit individual aircraft induction as well as deployment plans for the next six months. He also advised that airlines must focus on point-to-point direct connectivity, and thus, ramp up capacities with wide-body and narrow-body-long-range aircraft.

During the meeting, the minister reviewed the performance of each airline and emphasised over on-time performance (OTP). 

Airlines were further asked to keep a check on the fair for a few routes where prices are relatively high. The DGCA Tariff Monitoring Unit has been institutionalized to routinely monitor airfares on routes selected on a random basis.

The meeting was attended by Gen (Retd) Dr V. K. Singh, Union Minister of State for Civil Aviation & Road Transport and Highways, Vumlunmang Vualnam, Secretary, Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) and other senior officials from the Ministry.
