In a boost to Haryana's plan to set up a Cargo Airport in the NCR sub-region, Airports Authority of India has conveyed its in-principle consent to the project site.
The approval was given after carrying out preliminary site visit and pre-feasibility study, Haryana Chief Secretary P K Chaudhery said here today.
The application was filed with the Union Ministry of Civil Aviation for site clearance and the Defence Ministry has issued the requisite NOC to the said Ministry and the case is now being processed by it, he said.
