New flights will start from July 5 connecting Lucknow-Dehradun, Lucknow-Bhopal and Lucknow-Jaipur routes.

The RCS, also known as UDAN ( Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik), aims at connecting tier-2 and tier-3 cities apart from making flying affordable with fares capped at ₹2,500 per hour for which airlines receive a viability gap funding from the Centre as well as the state government concerned.
