The first international flight will take off from Gannavaram airport to Singapore on October 25. Even though the airport was given the status of international airport one-and-a-half years ago, the central government delayed permission for running international flights citing technical reasons. The state government set up Customs and Immigration wings at the airport and imparted the best training to staff. Indigo will run flights between Vijayawada and Singapore two times a week. The timings of the flight will be announced in a day or two.
