Suresh Prabhu, Union Minister for Commerce and Industries and Civil Aviation, said that the Civil Aviation Ministry aims at expanding its operations to 100 more airports in the country in the next five years.

The total number of airports in India will increase to 200, he pointed out.

He told reporters that, under the Udaan Scheme, the Ministry of Civil Aviation had built 30 new airports in the past three years. “Karnataka has been the biggest beneficiary of the scheme. The Ministry of Civil Aviation is striving for the modernisation of aviation sector keeping the convenience of passengers and stakeholders in mind,” Prabhu informed.

“Efforts are on to bring back Jet Airways, which has been going through a troublesome phase, to its robust health. The Ministry too has been working on the same to ensure that passengers do not face any inconvenience,” said the minister.
