I had come across these guys sometime in 2011/12. They had said they would be ready latest by Dec'2013.

I am not sure about the current status but a new airport without much potential was always going to be a difficult proposition.

Somebody in my previous job asked me for this presentation and since I anyways had to dig it in, thought of sharing it here.

If West Bengal were not a basket case, this might have some potential. However given that this is about 2.5 hours drive from CCU, not sure why someone would want an aerotropolis in Durgapur!

Their argument was the road is bad and takes 4-5 hours and people come to CCU to take flights . However the road can be resurfaced quickly !
