NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday inaugurated the Kushinagar International Airport. Union civil aviation minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, UP governor Anandiben Patel and CM Yogi Adityanath were present at the inauguration ceremony. Built at the cost of Rs 260 crore with the state’s longest runway of 3200 meters, the airport will put the district on the international aviation map, providing direct connectivity with South Asian countries like Sri Lanka, Japan, China, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore, South Korea and Vietnam. Located strategically near Buddhist sites in both UP and Bihar, the airport will serve as a major conduit in the Buddhist circuit consisting of Sarnath, Shravasti, Bodh Gaya, Lumbini, Vaishali, Rajgir and Sankisa. The airport is also expected to create job opportunities in the tourism and hospitality sectors.
