Mentioning about the construction of such an airport in Rajasthan, the Union Transport Minister, Nitin Gadkari said that, “similar projects are being planned in Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, and some other border districts across the country. As of now, an airport is being built in Rajasthan that would also have national highways and cement concrete road”.

    The government is working on ways to boost regional air connectivity in the country. In new civil aviation policy, the Regional Connectivity Scheme has been mooted that provides for various concessions to airlines. Under the scheme, air ticket prices would be capped at Rs. 2,500 for one-hour flights on un-served and under-served routes.
