Rajasthan’s Ganaganagar city is all set to expand its airstrip to facilitate intra-state air services connecting the district with Jaipur and Delhi.
Although, there is already an airstrip at Lalgarh but district administration has planned to expand it both ways for landing of commercial flights. According to sources, government is planning to start air services to the border district before next tourist season. The first flight of an intra-state air service from Jaipur to Udaipur via Jodhpur was launched on October 4 last year.
Government has tied up with Supreme Transport Organisation Pvt Ltd., to operate air services between different cities in the state. Several locations of world-class tourism, religious, historical and heritage importance would be benefitted by these air operations.
On an average, Rajasthan attracts over 12 lakh foreign and over two crore domestic tourists every year. Travel pundits hope that these kinds of air services would certainly help in giving a fillip to tourist footfall.
