TruJet, a regional air carrier led by Turbo Megha Airways Pvt Ltd. of Hyderabad, has become the first airline to carry out civil operations to Bidar in Karnataka. The airline launched direct flights from Bengaluru to Bidar on February 7th.

With the launch of this flight, Bidar finally arrives on the map of Civilian Airports in India. This flight was launched as part of the UDAN (Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik) Scheme which aims to provide regional air connectivity across destinations in India.
TruJet operates to 24 destinations in its network. The airline operates a fleet of 7 ATR72, including both the -500 and -600 variants.
