Shimla airport to resume operation soon: Virbhadra


Shimla, Nov 25  Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh said flights from the Shimla airport would resume soon with the renovation of the airstrip.

The Jubbarhatti airport near Shimla has been shut since September 2012.

The chief minister said the Airport Authority of India (AAI) has also conducted a survey near Kandaghat in Solan district, located adjoining the national highway 22, for setting up a new airport, which would facilitate landing of bigger aircraft.

“But before that, the Jubbarhatti airport would resume operation,” he added.

Presiding over the Anokhi Dali fair near Jubbarhatti, the chief minister said emphasis has been laid on connecting the left-out areas of the Shimla rural assembly constituency with roads as it is not possible to ensure overall development without roads.

He lauded the efforts of the locals for raising their economy by cultivating and growing off-season vegetables.
