[RxPG] Shimla, April 14 - Low-budget carrier Air Deccan Saturday started flights connecting New Delhi and the popular resort town Shimla.

'To start with, there will be four flights a week and if the business is good we may even consider morning and evening flights daily,' Air Deccan managing director G.R. Gopinath said here.

'For the first six months several Shimla hotels will book 12 seats on every flight and will pay Air Deccan over Rs.7.5 million at the end of the six months so that this route is made viable and popularised,' he said.

'The tariffs will range from Rs.1,000 to Rs.4,000 and average around Rs.2,000,' he said.

Air Deccan will start 48-seater flights to Shimla, which was so far served by 20-seater flights by Jagson airlines.

The Shimla airport runway has recently been increased to enable landing of 50-seater plains.

Air Deccan operates 350 flights daily, 80 percent of them to non-metros, officials of the company said.
