Prime minister Narendra Modi unveiled a new airport complex at Bamrauli airport in Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj district on December 16.

 
Modi applauded the efforts of the airports authority of India (AAI) to complete the project in record 11 months.
 
The new terminal building having an area of 6,700 square metre can handle 300 passengers in a peak hour.
 
The new airport complex of Bamrauli airport has been built at a cost of Rs 164 crores. Bamrauli airport belongs to the Indian Air Force and AAI maintains a civil enclave there. The previous civil enclave had an area of 0.8 acres with constrained operations through a small terminal building. There was no scope for expansion of the terminal building at the present location. Hence, a new airport complex with modern terminal building has been constructed. Uttar Pradesh government has acquired and handed over 50 acres of land to the AAI for development of the new complex.
 
Bamrauli airport was connected to Delhi and Mumbai in the past, but the air connection was intermittent in nature. After the launch of UDAN scheme, connectivity to other important cities from Prayagraj got the required boost.
