Domestic Airport at Jalgaon


Jalgaon is about to get an airport. Finally!!! The prolific Indian city....most known for being a vital junction in Railway routes, gets a 'functional' domestic airport.


So does that make me happy? Yes, of course, my hometown Bhusawal is at a stone's throw from Jalgaon, and it'll help immensely to cover the Mumbai-Bhusawal distance, that now takes an overnight journey by railway, in a matter of few minutes. And they're permitting flights during the night too...


Indian President Pratibha Patil, who was also born in the region, popularly known as 'Khandesh', laid the foundation stone for extension of the Jalgaon domestic airport and sanctioned a few crore rupees for its renewed start. And she wont be blamed for not tracking a follow-up on the progress of the subject matter this time. Because it's the local bureaucracy itself that wants the airport keenly.
