Within the framework of a plan for boosting regional connectivity, 50 new airports will be built in India over the period of three years, MINT reports on Tuesday.
According to civil aviation minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju, approximately 10 of them will be put into operation in 2017.
As Ashok Gajapathi Raju put it in an interview on the 23rd of August, the Indian authorities are ready to back up the new actors in the Indian aviation market, which is the world's fastest growing.
The Indian government intends to take up a number of “ghost airports”, given that there are over 30 non-operational airports in the country. These facilities will be developed into unpretentious airports at an indicative cost of Rs.100 crore.
