Jamshedpur, Sep 26 (UNI) Air Deccan, which completed a month's service from Kolkata to Jamshedpur today, is likely to introduce an additional morning flight from November this year.

Air Deccan presently operates a daily flight in each direction, deploying an ATR aircraft to serve this route.

Deccan Aviation Executive Director G R Gopinath, the beginning of air connectivity here helped the company create another great market for air travel.

''In past one month, the flight has received an overwhelming response here. About 2,000 passengers have availed the service here so far,'' he said.

Capt Gopinath further said,'' In deference to the requests of Jamshedpur citizens, conveyed to us by Tata Steel Managing Director B Muthuraman, regarding flights and fare rationalisation, we have decided that the upper limit fares on the Kolkata-Jamshedpur-Kolkata sectors will be capped at Rs 4,000. Also this November, subject to government approval, we intend to launch an additional morning flight connecting Jamshedpur to Kolkata.'' UNI BDG PP SR RAI1957
