Jaipur Set to Get the Old Airport Back

Jaipur is a very popular tourist destination and it is developing rapidly as well. This means a lot of rush. The city has one airport terminal known as terminal 2 at Jaipur International airport. Before this, the city had terminal 1 and it was converted into cargo airport. Now due to addition of many new flights, the airport has come under a lot of pressure. This sometimes causes trouble for the travelers. Seeing this, the authorities have plans to make the old airport functional again. A few flights will be shifted to the terminal 1. This will help in easing the operations which will be good for both travelers and management.

Jaipur-airport

In more news from the airport, the airfare between Jaipur and Chandigarh has increased. The Chandigarh-Jaipur flight used to cost INR 3000-3500 a seat but now it costs INR 4800. As the season for travel to Rajasthan, winter is almost here, the fare is expected to rise even more. This has happened because of repair work at Chandigarh airport. Earlier there were 2 flights between these two cities but now only one flight will ply which has resulted in higher airfare.
