Centre clears Rs 17500 cr Green Field Airport near Ludhiana

Quote:
The Central Government has cleared the ambitious Rs 17,500 crore Greenfield International Airport Project near Ludhiana to be built on Singapore-Frankfurt aerotropolis model.

The Punjab Government received a communication from the Ministries of Defence and Civil Aviation giving their final approval to the new project yesterday. Stating this here today, Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said the new airport would be developed as an aerotropolis, a modern age concept of a township-oriented airport. The aerotropolis, would come up in an area covering 3000 acres and would be the first green-field international airport in north India to be set-up in the private sector, Mr Badal said.

The aerotropolis would be built in the private sector by Bengal Aerotropolis and has Changi International Airport of Singapore as partner.

''The entire project would not only put the region between Ludhiana and Chandigarh on the high road to modern infrastructure development but would also act as one of the greatest drivers to the economy of the entire state,'' he said ''The airport near Ludhiana would help it emerge as Industrial Export hub of South Asia,'' added the Deputy Chief Minister

"We will be investing around Rs 2000 crore in the first phase of the project including construction of the airport and land acquisition.

BAPL had earlier signed a memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Punjab State Industrial Development Corporation Limited (PSIDC) for setting up an aerotropolis in the Punjab region whereby PSIDC will facilitate development of the project. It has also signed a MOU with Changi Airports International Pte Ltd for the planning and development of the Aerotropolis in Punjab.

BAPL had recently commissioned Indian Market Research Bureau (IMRB) for a study on the need and potential for an international airport in Ludhiana. The findings of the study revealed that the overall outlook for air travel in the Ludhiana region is very positive and there is high passenger potential for domestic and international routes.

The Ludhiana Aerotropolis will be country's second after the Durgapur Aerotropolis. The project will be spread over 3500 acres of land, out of which 2500 acres will be developed in the first phase.

Ludhiana now connected via air

Quote:
LUDHIANA: It may boast of highest number of Mercedes and BMW cars and millionaires and billionaires but Punjab's most industrialised city, Ludhiana, got air connectivity after years as an Alliance Air flight from New Delhi landed at the Sahnewal airport near here on Thursday.

The maiden flight to this city, known as the Manchester of India for the number of industrial units here, mainly carried state politicians and a few industrialists.

The flight between Ludhiana and Delhi will operate daily.

But as soon as the plane landed here and the politicians alighted from it, politics over claiming credit for the new air service took over.
