British Parliamentarian Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi has congratulated the people of Punjab for commencement of direct flights between London-Amritsar from the ensuing month of November.
He said with the start of this direct flight, the long-awaited wait for NRIs has ended. This flight will also be beneficial for residents of Jammu and Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh as will connect the region with Europe and other connecting flights.
In a statement by British MP Tanmanjit Singh Dhesi said it is a matter of great pleasure that direct flights between Amritsar-London will start on the occasion of 550th birth anniversary of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. “It was commendable that flights from London to Amritsar would start operating for three days a week”, he said.
He thanked the Central Government and Air India for this initiative. He has also thanked Punjab MPs, Amritsar Development Forum, Seva Trust UK and other organizations who supported to achieve this success.
It is worth mentioning that Dhesi has been making high efforts to start this flight for a very long time, and last month he has called on Union Minister Som Prakash and Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri to impress upon for commencement of this much awaited direct flight.
