According to a news release released by the Ministry of Civil Aviation on Saturday, the tableau highlights the Regional Connectivity Scheme UDAN (Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik) and the high dividends it has been delivering. The plan, which was designed by the ministry and implemented by the Airports Authority of India (AAI), aims to improve regional connectivity in a cost-effective and sustainable way. The front half of the aircraft-shaped tableau features women pilots, symbolising women’s power in Indian aviation, since India leads the world in female commercial pilots. The Buddhist emblem and the UDAN motto, Sab Uden, Sab Juden, are depicted in the tableau’s back half.
Launched in 2016, the UDAN scheme aims to fulfil the aspirations of the common man by following the vision of Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik with enhanced aviation infrastructure and air connectivity in tier II and III cities, as per the press note. The first UDAN flight was flagged-off in 2017 at Shimla by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
