Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to grace Gujarat with a two-day visit on 27th and 28th July 2023, culminating in the inauguration of the state’s first Greenfield Airport – the Hirasar Greenfield Airport. This visionary project, initiated with a Bhoomi poojan ceremony on October 7, 2017, holds immense significance for Gujarat’s economic landscape. With an extensive spread of 1025.50 hectares, the airport features a 3040m runway, spacious apron, and a passenger terminal capable of managing 1280 travelers per hour during peak hours.
Moreover, its strategic location near Rajkot-Ahmedabad highway ensures expedited logistics for various industries in the region, promoting growth and generating employment opportunities. The airport’s advanced infrastructure, including solar power systems, rainwater harvesting, and firefighting facilities, underscores its commitment to sustainability and innovation.
Additionally, the airport has recently received the International Aeronautical Information Publication (A.I.P) tag, enabling seamless aircraft operations. The gallery showcasing Gujarat’s rich heritage and traditions further enhances the airport’s appeal as a cultural hub. Inaugurating this state-of-the-art aviation facility is poised to elevate Gujarat’s prominence on the global industrial map and propel its growth trajectory.
