Aiming to evolve into a world-class airport with the state-of-the-art technologies and amenities, major improvements are under way in the city`s Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose (NSCB) International Airport that handles 11 million passengers annually.
A bomb hoax led to the evacuation of 1,500 employees and a massive search at a 14-storey building in the IT hub of Rajarhat on the city outskirts Wednesday. The hoax was traced to a youth who had been turned down for a job there a few months ago, police said.
Airport Advisory Committee chairman
and Union minister of state for Urban Development Saugata Roy
today said the ongoing modernisation work of the N S C Bose
International Airport here would be completed in 2011.
