The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has unveiled an Rs190bn ($2.67bn) plan to modernise the ailing airport infrastructure across the country.

AAI will invest the funding over the next three years to upgrade airport infrastructure, focusing on India’s smaller cities.

A senior AAI official told The Economic Times: “We are not making investments in just smaller airports but also airports like those in Kolkata and Chennai.

The state-owned agency is also working to set up new airports in Gujarat’s Rajkot, Jharkhand’s Dhalbhumgarh, and Hollongi and Halwara in the north-east.
