Rajasthan's Kishangarh Airport to be commissioned by August, says Airports Authority of India

New Delhi: In yet another achievement for the Airports Authority of India (AAI), the Kishangarh airport in Rajasthan is likely to be operational by next month.

AAI officials believe the new airport will cater to tourists who visit Ajmer on regular basis.

Sudhir Raheja, Member (Planning) of the AAI, said, "Hostile to smile was the motto we were working on. Eventually, we won the trust of the people and were helped by the people and state government, and today, this airport is ready. Licensing work is underway and I expect that airport will be commissioned in August."
A.K.Pathak, Executive Director of the AAI, said, "Kishangarh Airport is one of the very important airports in the Rajasthan region. Ultimately, Kishangarh Airport will feed our Ajmer Sharif as this carries religious value and lot of domestic as well as international tourists visit Ajmer every year. It will also serve the large marble business community."

Located about 100-kilometers from Jaipur, the airport will cater not just to Kishangarh, but also to Ajmer and Pushkar, the nearby cities that see a massive footfall of tourists who visit the Ajmer Sharif Dargah and the annual Pushkar fair.
