The Airports Authority of India has claimed to start air services from Bareilly to Delhi and Lucknow from December.



Once again, the Airports Authority of India has claimed to start air services from Bareilly to Delhi and Lucknow from December. The civil aviation ministry has started its preparations. The remaining work at Bareilly Airport is being completed rapidly. The equipment has also started reaching Bareilly to be installed in the recently completed new terminal building.

Under the central government’s regional connectivity scheme ‘Udaan’, the Ministry of Civil Aviation is trying to start air services from Bareilly Airport within two months. The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has also made almost all preparations to start flights from Bareilly to Delhi and Lucknow. There is about 20 percent work to be done at the airport which has been asked to be completed soon. Recently, the team of experts of Alliance Company had arrived here to conduct technical tests to start air services. Expressing satisfaction over the preparations so far, experts had asked to complete some more technical tasks. This work is going on and the consignment of necessary equipment has also started coming with it. According to AAI officials, all the necessary facilities will be ensured before starting air services from Bareilly to Delhi and Lucknow.

72 seater aircraft to fly from Bareilly:
72-seater aircraft will fly from Bareilly Airport to Delhi and Lucknow. Alliance company has agreed to start air service between Bareilly to Delhi but nothing has been clear so far by Turbo, a company contracted for air service between Bareilly and Lucknow. Turbo had contracted to buy two 19-seater aircraft from HAL at the Defense Fair held in Lucknow last year. Training of crew staff has also been done, but the process of purchasing a 72 seater aircraft remains skeptical. According to sources, if Turbo does not start the service under the contract then the offer will be sought from another company.

The new terminal building, built in 2520 square meters:
AAI had completed all other works, including the terminal and apron, in an area of ​​525 square meters at a cost of around Rs 70 crore last year. After this there was also an attempt to start air service from here but the contracting companies pulled back. Meanwhile, AAI has built a second building in 2520 square meters at a cost of about Rs 40 crore. It has a seating capacity of 150 passengers. About 20 percent of the work of six checking counters, X-ray systems, highmasters, finishing, etc. is left at the airport. The new terminal building will be used after completion. The old building will be used for airlines companies’ offices and other purposes. There will be 90 cars parking in the airport complex.

Bareilly airport is ready since last year. Turbo has taken a license for air service between Bareilly to Lucknow, although it has not yet formally given any information. On August 19, the team of Alliance Air Lines also came to conduct technical tests to start the flight between Bareilly to Delhi. He has also given his consent. Another building is also being prepared for the terminal. There is some work left which will be completed soon. – Rajiv Kulshrestha, General Manager Bareilly Airport
