BJP MP wants international flights from Bhopal airport



Bhopal: BJP MP Kailash Joshi has demanded that international flights should be started from the Raja Bhoj airport in the city for the convenience of passengers intending to travel abroad.

"Starting of international flights from Bhopal would help those desirous of going abroad and also aid in increasing business," Joshi said at a meeting of the Airport Advisory Committee last evening.

Apart from international flights, direct flights to places like Bangalore and Jaipur should also be allowed from the city, the MP from Bhopal demanded.

Airlines should work out modalities to start direct flights from Bhopal to other big cities in the country, he said.

Facilities at the airport should be improved to allow landing of large aircrafts at the airport, he said.
