• Birsa Munda airport fails to get international tag

    All efforts by airport authorities and the government to get the international tag for Birsa Munda Airport failed, despite upgrading its infrastructure for international operations three-and-a-half years ago.
    “None of the private flight operators are taking interest in Ranchi as a connecting link for international routes due to lack of passenger traffic,” Anil Vikram, Birsa Munda airport director, said.
    “We have been raising the matter in the meetings with union-state government officials and stakeholders for a long time,” Vikram added.
    Members of Federation of Jharkhand Chamber of Commerce and Industries (FJCCI) met Hazaribag MP Jayant Sinha, minister of state for civil aviation on November 27, during his visit to the state capital, and handed over a letter to him requesting to start services for Dubai. FJCCI said Dubai acts as a stopover for connecting flights to western countries and Bangkok for its connectivity to eastern countries. Jaromir Jagr Jersey
