Air Services from 8 airports to 68 locations in the last 4 years in UP

Lucknow: The air connectivity to Uttar Pradesh has increased 3-fold in the last four years, with as many as 68 connections now to domestic destinations from eight functional airports in the state, against just four operational airports four years back.
The sustained efforts of the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath have started showing positive results as far as regional air connectivity is concerned and consequently, the number of passengers also increased by 27.2 percent in the year 2018-19 as compared to the year 2016-17, officials here on Wednesday said.

By 2025, Uttar Pradesh will have the highest number of airports both domestic and international with a total of 21 airports including 5 international airports.

The remarkable growth of the civil aviation sector in the past 4 years is the outcome of UP CM Yogi Adityanath’s commitment and vision to make Uttar Pradesh a civil aviation hub. The Yogi Government focused on the development of the airports in every division with the aim to provide air connectivity to every resident of the state.

The thrust to air travel emanates from the Centre’s regional connectivity scheme and the proactive stance taken by the Adityanath government to boost the aviation sector for tourism and industrial development.
