UP Government is planning for air connectivity of Lucknow with other corporate and touristic cities. The tender for this project would be open from 22nd September. The plan is to connect cities like Varanasi, Jhansi, Kanpur, Agra, Gorakhpur, Allahabad, Bareilly, Meerut, Kushinagar and Sonebhadra with Lucknow, and also these cities would be connected to each other also.

The state government has decided to give certain incentives, which includes reduced parking fee and other bonus facilities to the airlines and for 10-20 seater aircraft which will not get adequate passengers, will be given payment for 50% for their seats by the tourism department itself.
