 International Flight Operations From Kushinagar Airport to Commence

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that Uttar Pradesh is a prosperous state from the Buddhist circuit point of view. Six major sites including Kushinagar are in this state. The central and state governments are advancing employment opportunities through tourism. In this sequence, the flight will start from the International Airport of Kushinagar within the next two months. Many countries including Sri Lanka, Japan, Singapore wanted to connect by air with Kushinagar. But due to not having a systematic system, there was a problem. Kushinagar will be the fourth international airport of the state. It is a matter of pride for the entire Purvanchal.

The chief minister came to inspect the under-construction international airport at Kushinagar on Sunday. After a review meeting of Airport Inspection and Officers with Union Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri and State Aviation Minister Nand Gopal Nandi, the Chief Minister said that construction of 17 airports in the state is going on with the help of Central Government. Five years ago, UP had only two international airports, but the Central Government has increased the number to four by including Kushinagar and Jewar in this category.

UP is a very prosperous state from the Buddhist circuit point of view. Kushinagar is the Mahaparinirvana site of Lord Buddha . Apart from this, Sarnath , Kapilvastu , Shravasti , Kaushambi and Sankisa are also in this state. Due to this, all the countries including Sri Lanka, Thailand, Japan, Singapore wanted to connect directly with Kushinagar but due to no arrangement, there was a problem.

The Chief Minister gave special thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Minister of State for Civil Aviation Hardeep Singh Puri and said that development works are being done at a rapid pace with the help of the Central Government. The Chief Minister said that the central and state governments are advancing employment opportunities through tourism. For the last 25 years the people of this region had demanded that there should be an active airport in Kushinagar. The Prime Minister has fulfilled this desire of the people. On commencement of flight from here, not only people of Kushinagar but other districts will also get facility and employment opportunities. This airport will be a matter of pride for Kushinagar as well as Purvanchal.

CM stayed at the airport for about one and a half hours. During this period, State Agriculture Minister Suryapratap Shahi, Kushinagar MP Vijay Kumar Dubey, Kushinagar MLA Rajinikanth Mani Tripathi, Khada MLA Jatashankar Tripathi, Hata MLA Pawan Kedia, Fazilnagar MLA Ganga Singh Kushwaha, Seed Development Corporation Chairman Rajeshwar Singh, Hiuva district convenor Chandraprakash Chaman etc. was present.

International flight operations from the Kushinagar airport will commence in the next months, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said Sunday, according to a state government statement. The Union Cabinet had on June 24 approved the Kushinagar airport's status as an international facility, stating it will offer improved connectivity to the important Buddhist pilgrimage site.

Adityanath met Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri at Kushinagar and discussed the progress in the project. Within the next two months, International flights will commence operations from this airport, Yogi was quoted as saying in the government statement. Once this airport begins operating international flights, it will become fourth international facility in the state. At present, two international airports -- Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport at Lucknow and Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport at Varanasi -- are operational in the state, the UP government said.

An international airport is under construction at Gautam Buddh Nagar. "Kushinagar is the Central point of Buddhist circuit. A large number of followers of Buddhism come here, as this is the place where Lord Buddha attained Mahanirvana. He had given his first sermon at Sarnath, Adityanath said. People from Sri Lanka, Thailand, Laos, Japan, Singapore and other countries wanted air connectivity with Kushinagar, he said. Puri said, "Permission for flight service has been given on 18 new routes. Apart from this, other airports will be constructed/developed." .
