Gorakhpur To Have Air Connectivity With Mumbai, Kathmandu: Yogi Adityanath

Gorakhpur: Gorakhpur will soon have air connectivity with Mumbai and Nepal's capital Kathmandu, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said today after inaugurating the first terminal of Gorakhpur airport.

The chief minister, whose Lok Sabha constituency is Gorakhpur, emphasised the importance of regional air connectivity and said the terminal would provide better and more facilities to passengers.

The priority of the state government is to start flight services to places like Allahabad, Bareilly, Kanpur, Jhansi and Faizabad, he said.

Yogi Adityanath said, "From development point of view, it is important that districts in Uttar Pradesh have low-cost air connectivity with the rest of the country and inauguration of this terminal is an effort in that direction."

"Soon, air service from Gorakhpur to Mumbai and Kathmandu will be started," the chief minister added.
