Kanpur Airport development to be completed by year-end

Kanpur Airport in Uttar Pradesh will soon be able to serve more than 300 passengers at peak hours and have a host of facilities such as eight check-in counters and conveyor belts for arriving passengers. The airport is being developed at an estimated investment of Rs 1.43 billion under the Centre’s civil enclave project, and this is expected to be completed by the end of this year, an official release by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) said.

The project includes a new terminal building. The apron is being designed to park as many as three A-321 type aircraft. The terminal building will have parking for 150 cars. It will be built with four-star GRIHA-energy efficient technology. The airport will provide more options for flyers who are looking to travel to various tier-II cities of India under the RITES-UDAN scheme.

Kanpur is a major hub, known for the production of textiles and leather. It is currently connected to cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Gorakhpur, and provides connectivity to various historical and tourist attractions in the region such as Bithoor, National Chambal Sanctuary, Kalpi, Etawah Safari Park, and Kalinjar Fort. It was found one of the most profitable airports in India from 2020 to 2021.
