Ajmer airport to be operational from I-Day

Ajmer: The Ajmer airport in Kishangarh is on the last phase of completion and therefore, various teams from different technical departments are visiting the airport to verify security and management systems. State education and panchayat minister Vasudev Devnani Wednesday visited the under construction airport for feedback.
Earlier, flight operations were supposed to start from March-April this year but it was further delayed for few months due to verify certain measures. A land dispute also propped up amid this which delayed the process further.
After inspection, Devnani said the airport will tentatively start trial this year in mid-July and possibly services will start from August 15 with the maiden flight to Delhi.
The airport will also connect other cities like Jaipur, Chennai, Mumbai and other destinations. Some companies have already assured of providing services from Ajmer in a charter plane with 70-80 seats. Devnani said last year he had demanded from ministry of aviation to start soon airport facilities in Ajmer.
