Airports Have Much More Than Just Infra Entities - Uddhav Thackeray
Airport development should not remain restricted just to industrial and urban development around it. An overall up gradation of tourism facilities is a must-do.
Addressing the board meeting of Maharashtra Airport Development Corporation (MADC) in Vidhan Bhavan here, he directed that the development of airports should be taken in a holistic manner.
The Chief Minister suggested "theme-based" development at the Shirdi airport considering the spiritual background of the temple town of saint Saibaba.
Spiritual tourism has got a boost due to the development of an airport in Shirdi, where night landing of flights should be facilitated from April.
Similarly, development of an airport at Nanded (an important destination for Sikh pilgrims) also should be theme-based," Thackeray emphasized.
