Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Tuesday sought the intervention of Union Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju to introduce direct flights between Bhubaneswar and Pune."Since there is no direct flight between these two cities, the passengers have to take flight via Hyderabad or Mumbai, which is costlier as well as time-consuming for them," said Patnaik in a letter to Raju.He said Bhubaneswar and Pune share a long-standing relationship, being two prominent educational and IT hubs of the country.He informed that many academicians and IT professionals frequently visit both the places.Besides, tourists from Pune undertake the journey to visit places like Puri, Konark, Chilika near Bhubaneswar and people of Odisha visit Shirdi, Mahabaleshwar, Trimbakeswar near Pune, informed the Chief Minister."I would, therefore, like to seek your personal intervention in the matter for the introduction of direct flights between Bhubaneswar and Pune by Air India or any other private Airlines at the earliest," he added.
