Kota to get new Greenfield Airport

Kota is expected to get a new Greenfield Airport soon. The Central Government has approved the diversion of 466.59 hectares of forest land, opening the way for the development of a new greenfield airport at Kota.

The plan was approved by the Forest Advisory Committee (FAC), a statutory body of the Ministry of Environment, Forests, and Climate Change (MoEF&CC).

Kota already has an airport that can accommodate smaller planes . Commercial flights from Kota Airport were halted in 1995, as passenger traffic dried up due to an economic downturn.

The State Government urged the Airports Authority of India (AAI) to establish a Greenfield airport at Kota in 2021.

The new airport would serve 1.5 lakh students from the city’s different coaching facilities, as well as tourists visiting the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve.
