Air connectivity in Uttar Pradesh improved over 5 years, to aid development: Yogi Adityanath

Uttar Pradesh will become the first state in the country to operate five international airports in the coming months, said Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, emphasising the importance of air connectivity for development. He stated that the state currently has nine fully operational airports, which has played a significant role in its development. Moreover, he pointed out that air connectivity is a crucial need for development in the state.

"Air connectivity is the need of the hour, and during the past five years, the state government has taken steps in this direction and has achieved great success," the CM said at the launch of the AirAsia service from Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport here.

"In 2017, the air connectivity from Lucknow was limited to only 15 cities; today, the Lucknow airport is providing air services to 30 destinations. In the coming time, Uttar Pradesh will be the first state to operate five international airports," Adityanath said, according to a statement.

Adityanath said AirAsia had shown a positive approach by launching its service from Lucknow. Keeping in view the population and capacity of the state, the pace of development will accelerate through better air connectivity, he added.
