 Friday, July 15, 2022 


Karnataka is considering developing nine water aerodromes to set up connectivity and boost tourism at these places. The state government is of the opinion that it will need to pay a lesser price for improving the infrastructure.

The Karnataka government has identified Kali River, Byndur, Tungabhadra, Mangaluru, Malpe, Linganamakki, Almatti, KRS and Hidkal reservoirs as prospective areas, said V Somanna, the state Infrastructure Development Minister.

The minister shared few plans regarding improving local connectivity at a workshop of the state government and the civil aviation ministry held in Bengaluru to collect contributions for Karnataka’s planned civil aviation policy.

The Karnataka government is aiming for aviation-led growth for the state. The minister said that a strong policy would help the state’s economy and sustain few sectors including industries, educational, horticulture and technological growth.

Works on the airports at Shivamogga, Hassan and Vijayapura is going on speedily and they would soon become functioning. The government is also getting hold of about 240 acres of land close to the Mysuru airport for both expansion of the runway and airport upgradation, said minister Somanna.

The Karnataka government is also considering the viability and working on a comprehensive project report for building heliports at Madikeri, Chikmagalur and Hampi.

Karnataka would seek an aviation expansion, and Bengaluru’s international airport, improved as a PPP project, is greatly triumphant. Hence, a wide-ranging policy is the need of the hour.
