Govt clears Rs4,500 crore for 50 regional airports under Udan scheme

As part of the Udan scheme for regional aviation, 15 airports or airstrips would be revived during 2017-18 and 2018-19 each and 20 during 2019-20

New Delhi: The Union cabinet on Monday approved a plan to spend Rs4,500 crore to develop or upgrade 50 under-served or unserved airports and airstrips to boost the aviation ministry’s regional flying scheme Udan.

At least 15 airports or airstrips would be revived during 2017-18 and 2018-19 each, while 20 airports or airstrips would be revived during 2019-20, the government said in a late evening statement.

“As an outcome of the approval, small cities/towns shall be connected on commencement of operation of flights to under-served/un-served airports. It will further boost the economic development in these areas as well as the surrounding areas in terms of job creation and related infrastructure development,” it added.
