Rs.40-crore approved for domestic airport in Ambala: Anil Vij

Chandigarh, 14 December, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
Haryana Home Minister, Sh. Anil Vij informed that Rs. 40 crore has been approved for construction of domestic airport at Ambala. With this amount, a new terminal will be built right next to Ambala Air Force Station, from where passengers will be taken on the taxi-way to board their aircraft.

He said that this amount has been approved by the Union Ministry of Civil Aviation. The process for construction of domestic airport terminal will be started soon.

Significantly, the UDAN scheme was launched by the central government under the regional connectivity scheme. Special efforts were made by Home Minister, Sh. Anil Vij to get the benefit of the UDAN scheme to Ambala. Ambala was included in this plan to provide air connectivity. Now the dream of a domestic airport is becoming a reality with the approval of an amount of Rs. 40 crore.

The first airport terminal was to be built around Ambala Air Force Station. For this, the administration had earlier identified land in Dhankaur, Dhulkot, Garnala and Barnala villages adjoining the Air Force station. But suitable land was not being found anywhere. Later, with the special efforts of the Home Minister, army land near Military Dairy Farm on Air Force Station Road was selected for constructing domestic airport.

This land was under the Ministry of Defense and the Sh. Vij met the Union Defense Minister, Sh. Rajnath Singh and got approval to build an airport terminal on this land, so that the proceedings could be expedited.
