  • I hope the required infrastucture is in place to make bigger aircrafts land at the airport. Recently the trial run of MDLR Airlines failed at the same airport when it tried to land a 70 seat aircraft.

    The govt in its zeal to land bigger aircrafts must not compromise on passanger security. The topography at Bhuntar gives me creeps when the aircraft lands. One small miss and the plane may fell in the river!!
