Ayodhya Airport getting Ready For Ram Temple Opening, By December 15

The inauguration of the Ram Temple is scheduled to take place on January 22. 

Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, declared on Saturday that the first phase of the city’s international airport will be completed by December 15, more than a month before the Ram Temple in Ayodhya is dedicated. The airport, which would be equipped to handle Boeing 737, Airbus 319, and Airbus 320 aircraft, will be known as the Maryada Purushottam Shri Ram International Airport.

According to an announcement from the Uttar Pradesh government, the chief minister stated that Ayodhya is becoming “an epitome of New India,” in line with Prime Minister Modi’s vision, during his visit to the airport site alongside Minister of State for Civil Aviation VK Singh and Minister of Civil Aviation Jyotiraditya Scindia.

“Originally, Ayodhya had a modest airstrip spanning 178 acres, but now it is being built as a major international airport,” stated Yogi Adityanath following review meetings with important officials.

He added that 821 acres of state-owned land have been made available for the project, and that the Airport Authority of India is overseeing work that is being done on a war footing. He explained that this was a part of his government’s commitment to guaranteeing Ayodhya’s development and giving the city’s citizens access to necessary infrastructure.

According to Mr. Scindia, attempts have been made to have the airport represent the Ayodhya cultural spirit. A 65,000 sq ft terminal is under construction in the first phase, with a capacity to handle 2-3 flights per hour. Work on a 2,200-metre runway is also underway to facilitate the landing of aircraft like the Boeing 737, Airbus 319, and Airbus 320. 

According to the minister, the second phase of the runway extension will stretch its length to 3,700 metres, enabling large aircraft such as the Boeing 777 and 787 Dreamliner to land right in Ayodhya. The terminal will occupy 5 lakh square feet of space.

On January 22, PM Modi is expected to attend the Ram Temple’s opening ceremony.
