CM inspects work on Shivamogga airport

Shivamogga: Chief minister BS Yediyurappa on Monday visited the under-construction Shivamogga Airport at Sogane on the outskirts of the city and reviewed its progress. He said the project is expected to be completed by the end of next year and start commercial operations by February 2022.

According to him, initially the Airports Authority of India had planned to construct a 2,050-metre runway. Following suggestions from experts, the length of the runway is being extended to 3,200 metres to operate wide bodied aircrafts, he said.

Yediyurappa said the project requires Rs 70 crore, which will be allocated in the next budget.
