Good news for flyers! Hindon Airport(VIDX) in Ghaziabad is all set to begin commercial operations in the first half of October. This comes as a big relief to flyers from Noida, East Delhi and Ghaziabad.
Once the operations begin, flyers will be able to travel to tier-3 cities across the country like Pithoragarh in Uttarakhand, Nasik in Maharashtra, Hubli in Karnataka, Kannur in Kerala, Jamnagar in Gujarat, and Shimla in Himachal Pradesh.

Furthermore, flyers can book tickets at affordable rates for these cities as airlines need to cap flight ticket prices at Rs 2,500 per hour of flight under norms stated by the RCS-UDAN scheme.
The airport is about 40 km from the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi. The civil enclave of the airport can handle up to 300 passengers during peak hours.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had inaugurated the civil enclave earlier this year on March 8.
