Modi inaugurates Deoghar airport: A boost for tourism

The Deoghar airport can handle landing and takeoff of Airbus A320 planes. Modi had laid the foundation stone for the airport on May 25, 2018.

RANCHI, July 12: Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Deoghar airport in Jharkhand on Tuesday by flagging off an IndiGo flight to Kolkata.

The airport spread over 657 acres of land has been built at a cost of Rs 400 crore. It has a 2,500-metre-long runway, which can handle the landing and takeoff of Airbus A320 planes. Modi had laid the foundation stone for the airport in May 25, 2018.

"I am confident that the new airport in Deoghar will be a game-changer for the entire region. It will give immense impetus to tourism and boost growth. I urge you all to visit Deoghar in the times to come!, Modi said.

"Not only Jharkhand, these projects will also benefit several areas of Bihar and West Bengal," Modi said, adding that the dream of having an airport at Deoghar has been fulfilled. Two more airports for the State are underway in Dumka and Bokaro, PM Modi said.

Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia said the airport will soon be linked to Ranchi, Patna and Delhi. He announced that Jharkhand will get three more airports and 14 new air routes.
