Haryana: International Civil Aviation Hub to be set up in Hisar
Chandigarh: The Haryana government has finalised an action plan for the development of an International Aviation Hub in Hisar in three phases, a state Civil Aviation Department spokesman said here on Saturday.
In the first phase, the existing airfield will be upgraded into a Regional Connectivity Scheme Airport under UDAAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik) scheme in six to eight months time, the spokesman said.
In phase two, the runway will be extended from 4,000 feet to 9,000 feet for Maintenance, Repair and Overhauling (MRO), parking and sub-basing operations.
"Finally, after a DPR study, bids will be invited for developing the Hub, including an International Airport," the spokesman added.
He said that the state government is developing the integrated Aviation Hub on the existing Hisar airfield as a brown field project.
"It is also proposed to expand the existing airstrips at Pinjore, Karnal, Bhiwani and Narnaul, from the current length of 3,000 feet to 5,000 feet and developing parking space for accommodating spillover from Delhi Airport for parking and MRO activities," he added.
