MP Santokh Singh Chaudhary reviews progress of work at Adampur airport

Jalandhar: MP Santokh Singh Chaudhary on Wednesday said he would meet Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia in New Delhi to urge him to restart flights from the civil terminal of Adampur airport.

He visited the airport to review the progress of the construction of the terminal building and other ongoing works. Inspecting the construction site accompanied by officials, he expressed satisfaction over the work and asked them to complete it within the expected timeframe.

As for resuming commercial flights from the airport, the MP said due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the flights had been suspended by the government, but it was now time to restart them as people of the Doaba region were feeling the need to travel to cities like Delhi and Mumbai for their work. He said he would take up the matter with the Civil Aviation Minister soon.

During the review meeting, Airport Director Kamaljit Kaur, ADC, Urban Development, Aashika Jain and officials of various departments apprised the MP of the works being undertaken at the airport. The officials informed him that work on the new terminal building with apron and taxi track would be completed by June end.

The MP said the new terminal building would enhance the capacity to handle passengers during the peak periods and provide them with basic amenities.
