Uttar Pradesh’s Chitrakoot is set to get its first tabletop airport. The development comes at a time when the town is witnessing a surge in the number of tourists.
The state’s first tabletop airport, which cost 146 crore rupees to build, is already complete. Chief Minister Yoi Adityanath lauded the airport’s location in the hills for its attractiveness. The Airport Authority of India will be in charge of managing this, which would be Bundelkhand’s first operational airport (AAI).
A 20-seater aircraft will also begin flying from here as part of the UDAN programme once it has obtained the necessary licence from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). Since September 2019, the main attraction for tourists visiting Chitrakoot has been the ropeway. Chitrakoot is accessible by air and by car via the Bundelkhand Expressway.
