The airport would play a crucial role in shaping the region’s youth and boosting the local economy, he added.  On the inaugural flight from Ahmedabad to Ayodhya, passengers dressed as Lord Ram, Lakshman, Sita, and Hanuman added a festive touch to the event.

Direct flights from the Maharshi Valmiki International Airport to Mumbai, Bangalore, and Kolkata are set to commence this week, in addition to the Ayodhya-Delhi route operationalised on December 30.

Culture and Tourism Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Jaiveer Singh, highlighted the rising demand for land for hotels, bhavans, and ashrams, with plans for 1,000 rooms and homestays in collaboration with Oyo, including 51 Oyo homestays run by women. To ensure a successful event, the Uttar Pradesh government has implemented an extensive plan encompassing advanced security and traffic management measures. The Integrated Traffic Management System (ITMS) has been integrated with 1500 public CCTV cameras across the city for vigilant surveillance.
