In latest Uttarakhand news, with the trial flight being completed, the service provider company is most likely to start the air service between Dehradun and Pithoragarh in September. The company further informed that the date of starting the air service would be announced soon. It is further learnt that the air service might be operated from Dehradun to Pantnagar first and then from Pantnagar to Pithoragarh.  Notably, the air service on the Dehradun-Pithoragarh air route received the Union ministry of Civil Aviation’s approving nod under UDAN scheme in 2018. Following the Union government’s clearance, nine-seater planes started operating on the Doon-Pithoragarh air route. However, this air service, which continued for some time, was interrupted owing to some technical glitches and then the operation was stopped altogether in March 2020.
