UP international airport projects fail to take off

Lucknow: Even as Akhilesh Yadav government is keen to leverage the tourism potential in Uttar Pradesh for boosting services sector growth, the proposed international airports in the state have utterly failed to take wings.

These airport projects had been proposed under different regimes to boost tourism and provide direct air connectivity from the major tourist hinterlands.

Much headway had been made in at least two proposed projects at Kushinagar and Jewar, yet the ambitious plans have only come a cropper.

Over the past decade, the regimes of both Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav have proposed to develop international airport/aviation hubs at Kushinagar, Jewar near Greater Noida (Gautam Budh Nagar district) and Agra.
