Under the UDAN scheme, the airline will be operating the new flights on the Lucknow-Allahabad-Lucknow route with RCS (regional connectivity scheme) seats at Rs 967 whereas the fare on the Patna-Allahabad-Patna routes would be Rs 1,216. From June 15, Jet Airways will fly three times a week between New Delhi and Nashik and will commence operations three times a week on the Nagpur-Allahabad-Indore route from June 16.
Routes and fares of Jet Airways under Udan scheme:
Lucknow-Allahabad-Lucknow: Rs 967
Patna-Allahabad-Patna: Rs. 1,216
Nagpur-Allahabad-Nagpur: Rs. 1,690
Delhi-Nashik-Delhi: Rs. 2,665
With at least half of the seats in the Udan flights are offered at subsidised rates, the participating carriers get a certain amount of viability gap funding (VGF) - an amount shared between the Centre and the states concerned. To fund the scheme, the civil aviation ministry is collecting a levy of Rs 5,000 per departure from airlines operating in major routes, including Mumbai and Delhi.
