Kanpur Airport (IATA: KNU, ICAO: VIKA), was formally a military airport designated for the use of Indian Air Force that is why it is still referred to as Chakeri Air Force Station. It was only in 1970 that the commercial flights started to operate from this airport towards Ahmedabad, Delhi, Mumbai. From the year 2004, it started functioning as a regular domestic airport connecting Kanpur to almost all the major cities of the country. AAI is planning to augment the existing Chakri civil enclave facility to accommodate larger Airbus type passenger aircraft and cargo handling capacities of Kanpur Airport. Plan to construct a new lounge and car parking for increasing the passenger handling capacity is already in pipeline and the land has already been identified for the same.

In these threads, I can expect some "forced discussions" or updates for the time being.
Like how you've been "discussing" Coimbatore Airport for most of your 10000 posts on SSCI? LOL!!

The truth is that Indian carriers have shifted their focus to developing markets of Northern India while growth at South Indian airports has slowed down. Its inevitable that people who are interested in these airports will create threads and discuss the growth in infrastructure.

Surely, not against starting of any thread, if there is continues updates.

You can see, which threads are being updated on regular/daily basis.

Coming to the shifting of market to Northern India, I agree. But it will be cyclic.

Threads are a means of sorting out topic-wise discussions.

It is not necessary that threads be "active" daily or even "regularly" like some Whatsapp group chat.

That is the wrong interpretation of some members who unnecessarily lengthen threads with pointless comparison discussions and off-topic ramblings, simply to keep the thread "active".

Kanpur, The plane will also fly from Lucknow to Khajuraho and Gwalior from Chakeri Airport soon. Its drill has been started. As soon as the approval is received, the airline will start from Kanpur for these cities. Passengers will get a lot of convenience when the flights start for these cities. Till now most of the passengers from Kanpur are forced to travel by train for these cities, but their flight will become easier and time will be saved.

Route has been approved from Chakeri Airport to Shravasti, Aligarh, Chitrakoot. Now the Airport Authority has proposed a new route. In the proposal, permission has been given to start flights from Chakeri Airport to Lucknow, Khajuraho and Gwalior. Explain that the government wants to make air travel easier for the common man under the UDAN scheme. In the past, the aviation directorate had approved 78 routes.

Prayagraj-Kanpur-Delhi flight started discussion

The talk of starting flights to Delhi via Prayagraj to Kanpur has once again intensified. According to airport officials, there are plans to start a flight from Prayagraj to Delhi via Kanpur. The announcement will be made as soon as the instructions are received.

Kanpur, The expansion work of Chakeri Airport will now be completed in October 2021. It was previously scheduled to be completed in February, but the deadline has been extended due to a lockdown due to corona infection. There are two major obstacles in its construction. One is the need of a wide road and the other is the waterlogging that takes place during rainy days. There is to be a firm drain here. If it is not made before the rain, then the situation will stop from worsening. Similarly, there is a narrow and winding route to reach the airport. This makes it difficult to move construction material. The plan to construct the four-lane route to connect the airport to the Chakeri-Prayagraj highway was ready, but the project is yet to be approved.

After the expansion of Chakeri Airport, industrial development will gain momentum here. With ease of movement, foreign investors and multinational companies will also be ready to set up industries here. With the formation of this, companies in countries like America, Russia, Italy related to defense products will set up units in the proposed defense corridor in one and a half villages. Some companies have already agreed to invest. Along with this, the way of foreign investment will also be paved in Transganga City situated in Ganga Barrage. Here, many companies of South Korea and China have also checked the opportunity for investment. Investors want to come, but the problem for them is traffic. Currently, there are flights to Delhi, Ahmedabad and Mumbai, but after the expansion of the airport, flights to many more cities will start flying. The number of planes will also increase for the rest of the cities. Also, cargo planes will also be able to stand here.

Leather products are largely exported from the city. There is a huge demand for saddlery here in European countries. Along with this, there are many other products which are sent abroad. At present, entrepreneurs and businessmen have to catch a plane from Lucknow to go out in connection with business. Many times flights on the Kanpur-Lucknow highway are missed. Businessmen from foreign or other metros also come here less, because they have trouble reaching Kanpur again after coming to Lucknow.

Four lane route needed

With the expansion of Chakeri Airport, road construction is also necessary. The road is to be built near Ruma located on Chakeri-Prayagraj highway. If there is a four lane road, then passengers will be able to come easily. The government had approved the construction of a 2.7 km long two-lane road and the land acquisition work has also started, but now it has to be made four lane. 54 crore 38 lakhs to be spent. The proposal has gone to the government. Now when it will be approved from there, it is difficult to say. If the airport expansion work is done in October and the planes will fly to Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad as well as other cities, then the current route will be jammed. This will cause problems.

Several issues arose in the virtual meeting held under the joint aegis of All India Vaishya Ekta Parishad and Traders and Industries Welfare Association. Condoling the sudden demise of the national president of the association Dilip Gupta. At the same time, there was talk of getting his statue installed in Lakhimpur. Apart from this, a resolution was passed to name Kanpur Airport after the name of former Prime Minister Bharat Ratna Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
