The first five no-frills airports would come up in four states and the work would begin in the next six months.

The airports, which have been shortlisted from 50 cities and towns in remote areas and various unconnected regions across the country, would come up at Tezu (Arunachal Pradesh), Kishangarh (Rajasthan), Jharsuguda (Odisha), Hubli and Belgaum (Karnataka), Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju told reporters here today.

“Airports Authority of India (AAI) has developed a no- frills model airport which will provide essential services needed to operationalise the airports, without in any way compromising safety and security.

“This will result in low cost of operation and make it viable for the airlines to run their services,” he said, adding that AAI was “committed to commencing work in this financial year at the five locations”.

Raju said a draft policy on remote and regional connectivity has also been evolved, which would aim at granting various concessions and incentives to airlines to fly to such areas.

“It is proposed to create a framework which enables synergy between scheduled airlines, regional carriers and non- scheduled airlines for better penetration and connectivity,” he said.
