India’s airlines to get 100 new airports in 5 years?

As part of its plan to revive the increasingly struggling Indian economy, the Indian Government wants the country to have 100 new airports within the next 5 years.

Given the financially struggling history of Indian carriers, I doubt that a more diluted route network will work miracles for the airlines or the airlines’ financial backers, but it will be interesting to see how this goes down.

there are some small cities that could do with an airport but 100 new airports seems like overkill....i doubt there would be enough demand for airlines to fly the majority of these routes on a regular basis....
