All routes under RCS have also applied for VGF (Viability Gap Funding)
For the fixed-wing aircraft, there is a cap of maximum fare of INR2,500 per hour of flight for the 50% of the seats (min 9 RCS seats and max 40 RCS seats per fixed-wing flight.
Capped RCS fares will also be graded based on distance, e.g. INR1,420 for a distance of 151–175 km, INR1,500 for a distance of 176–200 km, and so on, with a ceiling of maximum INR3,500 fare for a total distance of 800 km or more.
Value Gap Funding (VGF)
The scheme entails making the routes financially viable, without insisting on the financial viability of the regional airports, by lowering the cost of flight operations and through VGF. VGF will be available to flight operators on specific routes for the first 3 years of their operation

Above INFO is the sign of BGM airport will be a very busy airport around 24×7.
Why they put non rcs to Bangalore Mumbai and Chennai because of Hubli flight stop so
Good News but is there night landing facility is available at Sambra Air Port?
What about Kolkata route
Airline operators need to think about connecting Goa, Coimbatore & Shirdi also.
Hope this message will reach them.
Belagavi to Delhi direct flight and Belagavi to goa flight should also be included in Udaan 3 scheme
With all due respect to what has been done so far, it would have been much better if there was one single International level airport built somewhere near Kittur for Belagavi, Dharwad and Hubli. It would have been awesome if NWKRTC would have coupled up with Airport Authorities and arranged buses for all three Cities according to the flight timings.
This could have solved many issues.
1) Farmers of Belagavi wouldn’t have lost their land. A barren land that doesn’t grow anything would have served the purpose.
2) There wouldn’t be competition between Hubli and Belagavi for flights.
3) One single Airport built at an International Standard would have served the people much longer, than two domestic airports at Belagavi and Hubli.
4) Passengers wouldn’t have been robbed by Auto Rickshaw and Cab owners.
5) One flight would have served 3 cities instead of two flights originating from same destination and hence more business to Airliners.
6) More business to NWKRTC for serving the cities from airport.
7) The most important one, the convenience of more destinations being served to passengers of all the 3 cities.
There needs to be some planning in place before we actually execute the projects. With the amount they have spent in constructing two airports, they could have built a killer model airport for North Karnataka people. This would have created a Win-Win situation for everyone, be it people, government and airliners.
I really hope the government will plan and execute the future projects years ahead, keeping future traffic and possible growth in mind rather than settling for short term solutions and immediate situational demands. After all the UDAAN scheme is being funded by the common man’s (and woman’s) taxes. People deserve better.
