BENGALURU: Soon, one can have breakfast in Mysuru, lunch in Belur and dinner in  Kalaburagi, all on the same day. The Department of Tourism is looking for investors to start air charter services to woo tourists, especially from foreign countries and North India.

According to an official, who did not wish to be named, money is not a constraint for people these days, but time matters.

“For now, we will offer seven packages, including urban, heritage, nature, wildlife, wellness, religious and coastal tourism. Each cluster is designed keeping in mind certain tourists.

Some are interested only in visiting wildlife sanctuaries, some prefer beaches and others opt for religious spots. We have customised tour packages,” an official said.



He added that the package will include food too. One can get a taste of local authentic food like jowar roti in North Karnataka, ragi mudde in Mandya and seafood in coastal Karnataka. “It is in the initial stage. In the coming days, if more people approach, we can customise packages according to their convenience,” he said. An official said this can be offered from various metro cities across the country.

“People from other states can visit our state within days. This will benefit Karnataka tourism,” he said.

According to sources in the Tourism Department, the focus will be on domestic and foreign tourists.

“As per the policy, various concessions and incentives have also been offered by the state government for developing projects in the tourism sector,” an official said.

“If it becomes popular, one can avail of air charter service like renting a car,” he added.
