International Airport at Machhiwara

Deputy Chief Minister, Punjab, Sukhbir Singh Badal informed that permission has been received to build an international airport at Machhiwara. Machhiwara is situated at a distance of 30 Km from Nawanshahr on Nawanshahr- Khanna road. This would greatly benefit the Doaba belt, including Jalandhar, which has a very large number of NRIs. Work would start after the Lok Sabha elections conclude

you forgot the Amritsar airport. Sahnewal airport cannot be expanded because of its location and it would be very expensive to acquire the land around sahnewal. Building an airport from scratch will be good as it can have state of art facilities and Since after the machhiwara- rahon bridge is open to public, machhiwara is very convinient location for jalandhar and ludhiana belt.
