Dehra Dun: In view of a large number of pilgrims and tourists coming to Uttarakhand every year, the state government has decided to set up an airport under PPP mode between Haridwar and Laksar areas of the hill state.

During a meeting here, Chief Secretary Subhash Kumar directed the forest and revenue officials to identify land for the purpose within a week, an official release said here.

The airport would also cater to the needs of the people coming to the state due to rapid industrialisation in the area, it said.
