Cabinet approves declaration of Surat Airport as an International Airport

| @indiablooms | 16 Dec 2023, 02:54 am

New Delhi: The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday approved the proposal to declare Surat Airport as an international airport.

"Surat Airport will not only become a gateway for international travellers but also facilitate seamless export-import operations for the thriving diamond and textile - industries," the civil aviation ministry said in a statement.

This strategic move promises to unlock unprecedented economic potential, making Surat a key player in the international aviation landscape and fostering a new era of prosperity for the region, according to the ministry.

Surat, a rapidly growing city in India, has demonstrated remarkable economic prowess and industrial development.

Elevating Surat Airport to international status is paramount for enhancing economic growth, attracting foreign investment, and bolstering diplomatic ties.

With a surge in passenger traffic and cargo operations, the airport's international designation will provide a crucial impetus for regional development, the ministry added.
