Land acquisition for Bihar's Darbhanga runway expansion complete

The acquisition of 24 acres of land sought by the Airport Authority of India (AAI) from the Bihar government for runway expansion and provision of night landing facilities at Darbhanga airport has been completed.

The process to acquire 54 acres for the construction of a permanent terminal building will be completed by February next year.

The district land acquisition officer (DLAO) has already handed over the charge of the 24 acres land parcel to the joint secretary (cabinet secretariat) so that it can now be transferred to AAI (Airports Authority of India) on behalf of the state government. The process was completed in 10 months.

The airport became operational under the regional connectivity scheme on November 8, 2020. Spicejet introduced flight operations from Darbhanga on three routes to Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru. Later, IndiGo airlines also launched operations in the Kolkata and Hyderabad sectors.
