  SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend  

DEHRADUN, India , June 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Taking a cue from the Prime Minister's `Dekho Apna Desh' initiative to promote domestic tourism, a maiden flight carrying top officials from the Goa Tourism Department and industry stakeholders took off from Goa's Manohar International Airport that cruised to Dehradun in Uttarakhand on Tuesday 23rd May, marking the beginning of direct air connectivity between the two top tourist destinations of the country.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in this regard was signed on Tuesday between the top officials of the Tourism Department, Goa, and Uttarakhand Tourism Development Board in the presence of Shri Pushkar Singh Dhami, Chief Minister of Uttarakhand and Shri Rohan Khaunte, Minister of Tourism, Goa. The MoU paves the way for a first-of-its-kind tie-up between two states to share their experience and expertise in promoting tourism besides enhancing cultural exchanges

The new air corridor will connect the two tourism hot spots in the country thus giving a fillip to the tourism and related industries in the respective regions," said Shri Rohan Khaunte, Minister of Tourism, Goa.
