In a heartwarming gesture, Kishangarh community of the same city in Ajmer, Rajasthan, has been reimbursing air passengers Rs 1,000 each ever since the city got its airport connected with Delhi. To those who take subsidised UDAN flights to Kishangarh, the community welcomes them by collecting Rs 1,000 from within itself to increase tourism, Usha Padhee, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Civil Aviation said at an event. Kishangarh airport began operations on 8 October 2018, under Ministry of Civil Aviation and Modi government\u2019s flagship scheme UDAN - \u2018Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik\u2019, which aims to boost regional connectivity at cheap airfares. The route is operated by budget carrier SpiceJet after the airline got rights to the route in phase 2 of UDAN bidding. Meanwhile, Delhi-Kishangarh-Delhi air route had gained immense popularity with almost 85% of occupancy in these flights within a span of 12 days since its launch, Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) tweeted in October 2018.

Maihul Bhati, a Twitter user said, \u201cCongrats Ajmer..!! Kishangarh Airport will now serve more flights.

Though UDAN was conceived as a game changer, it hasn\u2019t served well airlines such as Air Odisha which is not operating flights anymore. Meanwhile, UDAN has been a success for certain airlines such as SpiceJet. Speaking at the same event, SpiceJet CEO Ajay Singh said, \u201cReligious destinations like Kishangarh are incredible\u201d. He also said that UDAN has been the most successful scheme of Modi government. The company has recently added another route - Jharsuguda in Orissa under the same scheme.
