Flight service from Hisar to Chandigarh and Delhi under the Udan scheme would begin from August 15, official sources said.

Pinnacle Airlines would render its flight services under the regional connectivity scheme, also known as UDAN (Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik), it was informed in a meeting chaired by Chief Secretary DS Dhesi here on Friday.

Security, fire and ambulances services would be provided to the Airport by the Police Department, Urban Local Bodies Department and Health Department respectively, an official release at the meeting said.

The scheme aims to take flying to the masses and enhance flight services to smaller cities.

Works on renovation of the runway and widening of taxiway have been completed while the work on extension of airport apron was under progress, it said.

Apart from this, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) would carry out the communication, navigation and monitoring work and would impart training to firemen and 51 security personnel in July.
