Decks cleared for Birsa Munda airport expansion

The expansion of Birsa Munda airport for vehicle parking, which was on hold because the land was occupied by the defence, is all set to get clearance from ministry of civil aviation.
Minister of state for civil aviation and Lok Sabha MP from Hazaribag Jayant Sinha, while addressing media persons in the state capital on Tuesday, said he recently met the Union minister and there was an agreement with the ministry of defence (MoD) in this regard.
"We are planning to expand the airport area for parking," Sinha, who was here to inaugurate Air India-Star Alliance regular flight service for Kolkata-Ranchi-Kolkata route and a stall of the Jharkhand Khadi Gramodyog Board, said.
Morning and evening flight services by Jet Airways between Kolkata-Ranchi were stopped last year in October, causing inconvenience to passengers. While the new Air India evening service was inaugurated today, the minister assured connectivity with Bhubaneswar and Raipur as well.
