PM Modi to inaugurate Deoghar Airport in Jharkhand tomorrow

As a key step to provide direct connectivity to Baba Baidyanath Dham, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the much awaited newly-built Deoghar Airport on July 12 . It has been constructed at an estimated cost of around INR 400 crore. The Terminal Building of the airport is equipped to handle over five lakh passengers annually.

The Ministry of Civil Aviation tweeted about the newly-built Deoghar airport and has laid emphasis on how it will give a big boost to Baba Baidyanath Dham-centric tourism in the region. “The newly constructed airport at #Deoghar is a big boost to Baba Baidyanath Dham-centric tourism in the region. Jharkhand’s second airport after Ranchi will add to the prosperity of the state,” the tweet read.

The airport is ready to become operational as two flight run trials have been successful, officials earlier said. The Indian low-cost airline IndiGo recently announced that it will start flight operations between Jharkhand’s Deoghar and Kolkata from July 12. The Deoghar-Kolkata flights will operate four times each week from July 12, the airline said in a statement. (Source Zee Business)
