Patel said here on that he has written a letter to Union civil aviation minister Ashok Gajapathy Raju to resume operations of Air India's flights on the New Delhi-Vadodara and Mumbai-Vadodara routes.

"I have taken up the matter with Union civil aviation minister. Passengers have been facing lot of difficulty reaching out to these two important destinations due to suspension of services. Now, they have to go to Ahmedabad first to catch flights for Delhi and Mumbai," he said.

Air India's flight on the New Delhi-Vadodara route has been suspended from last month while airline services to Mumbai have been suspended for more than six years now.

The state Finance, Industries and civil aviation minister demanded that operations on these routes should resume as people have been travelling from Vadodara more frequently now due to growing business and commercial activities in the city.

Patel also requested Air India to take steps on restarting of morning flight on the Delhi-Vadodara route.

Several industry representatives here have been demanding resumption of flights on these two commercially profitable routes.
