Union Cabinet Approves International Status for Vijayawada Airport


The Union Cabinet has approved the proposal(प्रस्ताव) to grant international status to Vijayawada airport, said Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.  The move follows the bifurcation (विभाजन) of Andhra Pradesh in 2014, after which the capital Hyderabad, as well as the state's lone international airport situated in the city, were transferred (का तबादला) to the new state of Telangana. 
The Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014, which bifurcated the state into Telangana and residual (अवशिष्ट) Andhra Pradesh, provided that the Centre must "examine the feasibility(साध्यता) of expanding the existing Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada and Tirupati airports to international standards and take an expeditious decision thereon."
