Hindon Airport, located close to Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad, will help reduce load at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport. Located 40 kilometers from the IGI airport, it belongs to the Indian Air Force (IAF), and the Airport Authority of India (AAI) has built a civil enclave inside it.
The IAF permitted the use of the airbase for civilian flights under the UDAN Scheme (Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagrik) and seeks to connect unserved and underserved airports, making flying more affordable.
