[Chennai,,TN] Centre Plans to Double Airports in 2-3 Yrs: Jayant Sinha
The Union government plans to double the number of airports in the country over the next two to three years to serve the largely untapped domestic aviation industry which has seen an increase in passengers
Minister of State for Civil Aviation, Jayant Sinha has said.”Our party in its 2014 elections manifesto announced the UDAN (Udey Desh Ka Aam Nagrik) scheme, under which we have to expand the number of airports.
The fact is we have 75 airports with scheduled services. We think to double it in next two to three years,” Minister was delivering the third Memorial Lecture on G Ramachandran organised by SICCI last night.
On availability of trained employees for the aviation sector, Sinha said, “We are facing shortage of planes and crew.
We have to pay a lot of time in developing the skills. For every plane, we need 14 crew. And that tells the kind of recruitment we need (to fill the shortage of manpower).
