Centre wants to build second airport for Kolkata: Aviation minister

Says state not giving land

On 6 February 2022, the civil aviation minister Jyotiraditya Scindia said that the Centre has elaborate infrastructure development plans for West Bengal including a second airport for Kolkata, but the Mamata Banerjee government has not yet provided land for it. He said that the existing airport - the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International (NSCBI) Airport - is currently running at maximum capacity and for several years, letters and views are being exchanged for a new site, but no concrete step has come from the state government.
