Whenever someone mentions the word airport, the only name that comes in our mind is the Indira Gandhi International Airport, right? Well, that’s now about to change ‘cause Delhi’s wait for its second airport is finally over!

Catch Flight, Not Feelings! | We just got wind that the Hindon Airport in Ghaziabad will witness its first flight on Friday, the 11th of October, making the city home to two airports at last! The first commercial flight scheduled to take off is a nine-seater airplane for Uttarakhand’s Pithoragarh district. Located around 40 kms away from the IGI Airport, the flight connectivity from Hubballi Airport in Karnataka and the Hindon Airport will start on the 6th of November. 

The new airport, which will reduce the load on IGI airport, belongs to the Indian Air Force while the Airport Authority Of India (AAI) has developed a special enclave inside the premises. The IAF has permitted the use of this airport for civil purposes under the UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik) scheme. Did you know the first flight scheduled to take off from this commercial airport is owned by a private airline by the name of Heritage Aviation Private Ltd? Yep, and they’re planning to launch flights to Faizabad, Hubli, Shimla, Gulbarga, Dehradun, Coonoor and many other such destinations from here as well.

So, are you guys excited to catch your next flight from here?
