    New Year Gift::Many thanks to GoI for approval of air connectivity for five cities from Mysore. In this connection, I appreciate the hard work and sincere approach, co ordination skills of our MP, Sri Pratap Simha which has yelded positive results for the betterment of Mysore tourism.
    I am placing a request providing air connectivity to the hill pilgrim centre of Tirumala. Right now there is one express daily from Chamrajnagar and one weekly express to Renigunta. This is inadequate for a popular destination.. It will be very popular and I am sure co -readers will agree. Direct flight to Tirumala is preferred as one can avoid touching very busy and congested Bangalore traffic.
    Hoping our MP will look into this request favourably and seek approval from the GoI

    Yes I agree for a flight to Tirumala from Mysuru.It can happen only through dynamic M.P like Hon,ble Simhaji.There are many M.P s in our state just enjoying the prevelege and facilities as M Ps without doing any tangible results to public

    Sincere thanks to Sri Pratap Simha, MP for his unending enthusiasm to improve air connectivity to Mysuru. My request would be that at least the sector between Mysuru-Kochi be linked to international air timings such that US, Europe and Middle east air travelers will have direct access to Mysuru.

    Thank-you Mr sinha for getting the connectivity to Mysore.A flight to renigunta will be the best thing that should be done as lot of people use in the Mysore and neighborhood such as coorg

    Even though it is interesting to see 6 more flights sanctioned, I don’t think Mysore-Belagavi has any merits. Instead it should be extended to Shirdi Pune, or better to Mumbai.

  7. A giant step forward towards expanding air traffic from and to the prime tourist destination Mysuru thanks to the untiring efforts of our MP Mr.Pratap Simha. The people of North Karnataka feel happy for the direct airlink from Mysuru to Belagavi. It is good to expect Mysuru airport which had been reduced to a sleeping beauty due to a single uneconomical stop start flight to Bengaluru to buzz with activity which is sure to have a cascading effect to give a boost to the development of industries and for the promotion of tourism potential around Mysuru.

  8. Sampath Kumar says:

    Mysore-Bangalore flights are a waste as this will have very less occupancy, this service will most likely be availed by international passengers and that is based on the timing of the flight leaving Mysuru. Instead route like Mysuru-Hublli or Mysuru-Pune or Mysuru Vijayawada or other locations should be explored or Mysuru-Bangalore should be extended to other locations to increase occupancy and utility.

  9. Prathik Kini says:

    It is a very good initiatve, Esp the Mysore – Bangalore flight. The reason being international travellers need to spend atleast four to five hours to reach Mysore after landing in Bangalore.

    @Star of mysore, there is no clear date as to when will it start ? also no information on which days flights are operational ?
