According to the news of the English news website ET, he said that the government is planning to launch 100 new airports in the next 15 years and it will cost Rs 4 lakh crore.

According to the Minister of Aviation, 70 out of 100 new bases will be built in such a place where there is no such facility yet, while the rest of the airports will be made at such places where there are already airports but the burden of air services is high.
