  • At present about 120 – 140 passenger trains and about 80 – 100 freight trains cross Nagpur every day. Apart from this over 7000 trucks cross Nagpur every day. Their integration with International Passenger and Cargo Airport facilities would make it very advantageous and cost effective for development of air transportation.

Nagpur Connectivity

  • Nagpur has very good potential for becoming an International Hub Airport also in view of its geographic location. For the international hub-and-spoke traffic, the following routes have been identified as potential Hub-routes: Europe- S-E Asia & South Pacific; Africa-NE Asia; Europe-South West Asia; NE / SE Asia-South West Asia. On the domestic front Nagpur will act as a hub for all North-South-East-West traffic in India. Nagpur probably has the best location in India from the point of view of sustaining domestic hubbing.

Nagpur has a distinct advantage over other proposed Airports in terms of (a) low gestation period (on account of the existing Airport); (b) expected rapid development of domestic connectivity (on account of its unique location to support domestic hubbing); (c) Easy Access to almost 10% of the potential International hubbing traffic in the form of currently over-flying flights over the City (accounted by over 55 different Airlines); (d) Possibility of creating perhaps the best multi-modal infrastructure in the country within MIHAN.
