India’s low-cost pioneer Captain G R Gopinath is all set to start Deccan Shuttles, non-scheduled chartered flight services, in the state of Gujarat from August 20. The Gujarat venture comes on the heels of Capt Gopinath’s end-to-end logistics venture Deccan 360 that failed to take off. This time around, Captain Gopinath is believed to have held talks with the chief minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi to set up air cargo services in the state. However, the government is keen to air-link the cities of the state before starting on the air cargo services.
