Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia has said that the under-construction new terminal of Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia Airport will be ready by January 31 or the first week of February.
The Union Minister stated this after inspecting the under-construction airport terminal in Gwalior on Wednesday.
“This is a historic moment for Gwalior. Not only on the map of India but Gwalior is ready to rise on a global level. This airport terminal was the dream of every person in Gwalior. A grand airport has been developed by the Airport Authority of India, which has history, culture, and modernity–the confluence of all four things,” Scindia said.
“We aim to make this the fastest airport to be built in the history of India. The foundation stone of this airport was laid by the Home Minister on October 16, 2022, and we will try to have it completely ready by January 31 or the first week of February,” the Union Minister added.
