AMRITSAR: Amritsar Vikas Manch has welcomed the announcement of twice weekly non-stop flight between Amritsar-Birmingham by Air India from early 2018.

Manch Patron Dr Charanjit Singh Gumtala said that AVM has been lobbying for the resumption of Amritsar- Birmingham,  Amritsar-London, Amritsar- Toronto direct flights by Air India for many years and in January 2017 filed a Public Interest Litigation in Punjab & Haryana High Court.

 Now  we are thankful to MP Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi (Slough) UK for initiating talks with Govt. of India and MP Preet Kaur Gill from Birmingham Edgbaston(UK) for the support to this effort. Manch is also thankful to Lok Sabha Member Gurjeet Singh Aujla and Rajya Sabha Member Shwet Malik for raising the issue of Air India direct flights from Amritsar inside and outside the Parliament. We hope that Amritsar-London and Amritsar-Toronto direct flights will also follow.
