Karnataka government to build heliports in major tourist destinations

Published on : Wednesday, April 7, 2021

As part of its efforts for tourism development in the state, the Karnataka government has planned to build heliports in major tourist destinations, including Kalaburagi, said the state Tourism Minister C.P. Yogeshwar.

“We have decided to build heliports in major tourist destinations across the State to boost tourism. Kalyana Karnataka has good potential for development of tourism as it has many historical monuments. We have, therefore, included Kalaburagi in the list of places where we are going to build heliports,” said Mr. Yogeshwar.

The Minister said that Bengaluru, Mysuru, Hubballi, Hampi and Mangaluru are other places where heliports would be developed.

“Just as an airport is for larger flights, a heliport is a permanent place for helicopter operations. It would be larger than a helipad and can accommodate four-five helicopters. We need a minimum of five acres to build a heliport. Each heliport would cost about Rs. 10 crore,” Mr. Yogeshwar said.

Chandrampalli Dam, Amarja Dam, Bhosga Lake and Sonna Barrage, were also identified for the development of tourism.

Kalaburagi Lok Sabha member Umesh Jadhav, legislators M.Y. Patil, Dattatreya Patil Revoor, Basavaraj Mattimud, B.G. Patil, Rajkumar Patil Telkur, Deputy Commissioner Vijaya Jyothsna, Chief Executive Officer Dileesh Sasi and Kalaburagi City Municipal Corporation Commissioner Snehal Lokhande were present along with the Tourism Minister.
