In a first, a desi firm, Modair has introduced this aero sport in the beautiful town of Neemrana in Rajasthan. The firm will offer some exciting air experiences such as adventure flying, cockpit flying and sky-diving from Neemrana and Aligarh airports.
Modair chairman Atul Jain said, “We have introduced a wide range of air adventure tourism services and look forward to come up with many more exciting offerings for adventure travel connoisseurs. All our efforts are intended to help support Indian economy by giving a boost to investment in India’s price competitive tourism sector.
