Mathura heliport  to commence  operation by Dec

Tuesday, 23 July 2019 | PNS | Lucknow

The Uttar Pradesh government on Monday informed the Assembly that a heliport being constructed in Mathura would become operational by December. 

Besides, it said, to increase connectivity, airstrips were being constructed in Chitrakoot, Jhansi, Sonbhadra, Shravasti, Moradabad and several other cities.

“In Mathura, the government is constructing a heliport at the cost of Rs 4.94 crore and chopper service for tourists will commence from December,” Parliamentary Affairs Minister Suresh Kumar Khanna said during the Question Hour.

Khanna further said that work for acquisition of land for Jewar international airport in Gautam Buddha Nagar and construction of boundary wall of Kushinagar international airport had started.

The minister said that the government had already provided facilities like fuel subsidy and free land and parking facilities for private aircraft to promote tourism in the state.

He, however, clarified that the operation of aircraft service was with private companies and it had nothing to do with the  government. 

“The government can only develop the infrastructure, but it is the aviation company which will commence the service,” Khanna informed the House.
