    So much demand is there for Mangalore - Pune route both ways.
    Going by just my work place alone, there are so many people travelling biweekly and as of present, there are no direct flights on this route. Please start Pune Mangalore direct Daily flights.

    Well if FlyDubai starts flights from Mangalore to Dubai, it would be great. Its a low cost airline and it also connects internationally to Asia, Europe and Africa. Plus many Mangaloreans like to stay in Dubai. I think its a good idea if FlyDubai begins its operations to Mangalore.

    In Mangalore Airport Airlines can start with more departures, but How passenger will reach Mangalore international Airport.
    If Airlines are ready to give competition in Airfare and do a business.. From Mangalore to Bangalore Air ticket can get for Rs.2500 or 2000.. . But How passenger or family will reach Mangalore Airport without spending Rs.1000 for Cab or Taxi, hence there is no Bus transport or train.
    I request with government to provide Bus facility to Mangalore Airport and Kavoor to Bajpe road work to be developed..
    This can be improved by media people and can facilitate to get high departures and improve Mangalore city.

    South Kanara is famous for Yakshagaana Kalamela Stage Drama and so on and South Kanarians are well qualified n capable to understand n to decide what is good what is bad. What is true what is false. In short, Tuluvaas not require any Nautanghi now.
    For 2019 election already decided to support and elect.

    I think KATEEL has taken the initiative means it will take atleast 10 to 12 years to implement. That is sure . After completing Pumpwell Flyover this will start and Air Passenger can see Pumpwell flyover from aircraft windows.

    If the airlines receive poor response of passenger traffic, ultimately services get stopped ....
    Ticket fares make a difference, if they don't charge equitable, travelers would go for cheaper options .....
