In a significant development, Gurugram is set to become home to the country’s largest heliport, with 30 acres of land allotted to the Central Government.
Situated near the Dwarka Expressway, just 13 kilometers away from the IGI Airport in Delhi the proposed heliport aims to provide a range of services including helicopter taxi, private charters, and medical ambulance services.
The construction of this heliport, facilitating easy access to northern India, is the result of an agreement between Pawan Hans Limited, the Central Government, and the Haryana Government.
Deputy CM Dushyant Chautala revealed that during the recent ‘Wings India-2024’ aviation summit held in Hyderabad, three MoUs were signed, including one with the Airports Authority of India.
Under this agreement, the Airport Authority of India will manage equipment, functioning, and technical support at the airport.
Another agreement was inked between Alliance Air and the Haryana Government, designating 9 air routes in the state for flight operations, supported by the Viability Gap Funding (VGF) scheme.
Notably, Maharaja Agrasen Airport in Hisar will witness flights from two aircraft three days a week.
