Means of Civil Aviation

            From 1987 the Administration of the Union Territory is operating a dauphin helicopter from Pawan Hans Helicopters Limited, as a medical ambulance for casualty evacuation from other islands to Kavaratti as well as from all islands to Kochi. The same helicopter is also used for inter-island passenger transport during monsoon when the fair weather ships and boats are out of service. Apart from this it is also performing daily trips to Agatti during all seasons for connecting the Indian Airlines operating from Agatti. The Indian Airlines is operating a 15 seated mini aircraft in the Agatti ľKochi sector daily except Sunday and in the Agatti-Goa sector on alternate days.

                      Action is on hand to introduce mini aircraft service at five islands.  Consultation has been made with Taneja Aerospace for introducing these services. However, the proposal for construction/expansion of airstrips is pending for environmental clearance. Mini Airstrips are proposed to be constructed at Kavaratti, Minicoy, Kadmat, Kiltan and Andrott. Night landing facilities / fuel storage/refueling facilities in all airfields will also be provided to meet the requirement as and when the service is commenced.
