Already a tourist hotspot, Rajasthan has got more reasons to cheer after the Central government gave nod to four low-budget airports, which will come up at Ajmer, Kota, Alwar and Bhilwara.
The Union government on Friday decided to set up 51 new low-cost airports with an aim to give a boost to the civil aviation sector and increase air connectivity to various destinations.
Ajmer, a global tourist spot due to the dargah and proximity to Pushkar, needed an airport to give travelers the option to directly reach the city. It will be of great help to pilgrims coming to Ajmer and Pushkar.
Kota which has emerged as a coaching hub in the country will benefit hugely from the decision. A majority of students in Kota are from different states who often travel in and out of the city. Alwar, Kota and Bundi are also popular among foreign tourists for their art. Alwar is popular for Sariska wildlife, Silliserh and beautiful palaces. “Kota and Bundi are already big tourist destinations for their miniature paintings and artworks and many foreign tourists are forced to take the road route to reach these places. Airports in all the four cities (or towns) will help tourists cut down their travel time and have a delightful journey.
