    Seven new airports to come up in Uttar Pradesh - The Times of India

    LUCKNOW: Seven new airports are set to come up in Uttar Pradesh. A memorandum of understanding to this effect was signed between the government of Uttar Pradesh and Airports Authority of India (AAI) on Monday.

    The MoU paves way for development of airports at Meerut, Moradabad, Faizabad and new civil enclaves in Agra, Allahabad, Bareilly and Kanpur.

    A ministry of civil aviation release stated that the thrust of government is to have an inclusive growth in the country for which the regional or remote area air connectivity can act as a catalyst. In this endeavour, the government has plans to take up the development of airports in Tier-II and Tier-III cities including the airports belonging to state governments.

    The government of Uttar Pradesh has handed over three airports namely Meerut, Moradabad and Faizabad to AAI. Further, the state government has also agreed to provide land and other logistical support for establishing new civil enclaves at Agra, Allahabad, Bareilly and Kanpur. Thus, a total of seven airports/civil enclaves in Uttar Pradesh will be developed.

    Moradabad is only 80 KMs from Bareilly..... Why on earth would you want to have airports in both the places? Wouldn't they by redundant?
