India has become third-largest aviation market: PM

After inaugurating the first phase of Mopa international airport in Goa on Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi emphasised that with the efforts of the people, India has become the third-largest aviation market in the world. In the last eight years, the country made all possible efforts to improve ‘Ease of Travel’ for tourists, he added, reports Devesh Kumar for Mint.

PM Modi laid the foundation stone for the Mopa airport in 2016. The Mopa airport will be the second airport in Goa and another one is in Dabolim. We have increased visa-on-arrival facilities and simplified the visa process, the Prime Minister added.

“For the first time in the country, two airports have been established in a city. Under the previous government, not even a single airport was constructed in a year. Wherever there will be double engine government, the development will happen,” Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia said.

“It has been the constant endeavour of the PM to provide world-class infrastructure and transport facilities across the country. In yet another step towards this, the PM will inaugurate the Mopa International Airport, Goa,” the government said.
