Anil Vij meets Rajnath over airport project

Ambala: Home and Health Minister Anil Vij on Tuesday met Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and sought his intervention over land requirement for a domestic airport in Ambala.

In December 2018, the civil airport project in Ambala was approved by the Central Government under Udan 3.0, but the project had been hanging fire ever since as land had not been finalised yet. “I met the Defence Minister today to request him to constitute a team comprising officials from the Air Force, Army, civil aviation and Haryana to visit the site and identify land for the project. He gave me a positive response and issued directions to constitute a team for the visit,” he said.

The proposed airport in Ambala would have flights to Srinagar and Lucknow. The flights were earlier expected to start from the Ambala Air Force station from July 15, 2019.
