Hajj and Umrah operators Association want direct flight from Srinagar to Saudi Arabia

Srinagar, Jan 21, : Hajj and Umrah operators Association Monday requested authorities for direct flights to Saudi Arabia once a week saying both pilgrims as well as operators face difficulties during the process.

“We have to shift pilgrims from Srinagar to Delhi where they face difficulties in check-outs, collecting baggage and stay in the hotels, and it becomes very hectic. If one international flight is allowed directly from Srinagar it will possibly be a full flight,” Nisar Ahmed, the president said.

   He said they are doing a noble job and are putting extra efforts to ensure better services.

  “Government should look into the demand for allocating space for Umrah pilgrims at the airport and possibility of starting a weekly international flight from the airport,” he said. (CNS)
