The fare will be just Rs 1,999 for Indore – Gondia or Gondia – Hyderabad travel and the maximum fare would be around Rs 2600; Mandviya said.
Mandviya and Sunil Mendhe, who is the Lok Sabha MP from Bhandara-Gondiya seat, were addressing reporters at Birsi Airport, situated 18 km from Gondia city.
Mendhe said that Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia would inaugurate the Indore Gondia-Hyderabad flight from Indore.

After a delay due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the flight operations are most likely to start from March 13, Mendhe said.
The airport at Birsi near Gondia was constructed in 2008 and there was big demand of the people to start commercial flight operations from here, he said.
