12 Tourist Hotspots To Get Better Air Connectivity Under Udan Scheme


The tourism ministry has urged the civil aviation ministry to develop airports in at least 12 popular tourist cities of the country to promote connectivity and said it will provide the funding for the projects, officials have said.
