NEW DELHI : India plans to build new airports with integrated metro rail connectivity to allow smoother passenger transport and rail tracks to the closest sea ports for faster cargo movement, an official aware of discussions within the government said.

Such multi-modal connectivity hubs are expected to give a boost to mobility as well as trade, the official said on condition of anonymity. The move comes at a time air travel has rebounded after covid, and airline capacity utilization has crossed 80% at all major airlines.

The government is planning to raise the number of airports from the current more than 130 to around 220 by 2025, and better prospects for the sector have given a leg-up to project feasibility.
