UP to have maximum number of international airports in the country with recent addition of Kushinagar

New Delhi: Uttar Pradesh will soon be the state with maximum number of international airports in the country. With three new international airports expected to be made operational in the next three years, the state will soon have five international airports. 

The Yogi Adityanath-led government in UP has sanctioned Rs 200 crore for the Kushinagar airport, which got the Directorate General of Civil Aviation’s (DGCA’s) approval recently, thus becoming the third licensed international airport in UP after Lucknow and Varanasi.

The Jewar international airport, which is coming up in the NCR region and is expected to be ready by 2023 while construction work for the international airport in Ayodhya is on full swing and air services are expected to start early next year, news agency Press Trust of India had earlier reported citing state government officials.

All these international airports in UP are expected to give a boost to the tourism sector in UP and aid in the development of the economically backward eastern region of the state.
