The government on Wednesday said the Hindon Air Force base in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad may be used to connect regional destinations to the national capital in future.

According to Civil Aviation Secretary R.N. Choubey, the Ministry of Defence has agreed to provide the Air Force base for flight operations under the second round of the Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS-Udan).

However, the IGI airport operator DIAL (Delhi International Airport Limited) has to be taken “on-board” for the new arrangement to be implemented.
