One flight stop few years back, then three flight stop, now starting 56 take off- very soon. It is becoming a hub of international punjabi NRIs. It is estimate that average of 8 to 9 million punjabi NRIs travel to Punjab every year

  • Air India starting its Amritsar/Birmingham/Toronto/Amritsar service on May 15
  • Singapore Airline, which landed here four months ago, has been going full, three days a week
  • Malaysia Airlines, British Airways, Phuket Airlines, Tajikistan Airlines, Uzbek Airways and Air-India are also lining up a landing here
  • Cargo flights are planning to double their flights from three to six in a week
  • Airport Authority of India decided to develop 28,000 sq metres of land for core airport operations. The new terminal is already towering over the complex and the cargo apparatus is preparing to receive over 50 flights per week from the current 25.

Airport Authority of India promises to throw open the revamped terminal building this October.

Right now passengers are facing great inconvenience- No Air Condition in arrival and departure halls, shabby canteens, lack of conveyor belts, trolleys and shopping arcades paint a gloomy picture of the ‘international’ airport.

The passengers and their relatives have to face a lot of inconvenience as there are no electronic flight information display boards. The airport is sans proper seating facilities or wash-rooms for those who come to receive NRIs.

Ajanala bypass chowk to Rajasansi airport -there is no provision of street lights on either side of the road.
