Why so many New Airports when we don't have flights for old ones?

flights, India, airports

It has remained the priority of all the governments to announce new airports; however, no one cares about the availability of flights in airports opened in the past. Many of such airports are opened to just get a political mileage and mostly, no one cares when they become operational or ready. Already many airports in India are lying vacant because of the non-availability of the flights. One example of such airport is Ludhiana airport which has no active flight on the schedule. Earlier, Kingfisher started its flights from here but after the failure of Kingfisher airline no other operator starter flights from Ludhiana.

Same is the case with Chandigarh (Mohali) International airport where the international word is symbolic only. Governments run to announce this airport as an international airport; however, no one cared to make arrangements for the start of international flights. After two years and after the intervention of honorable high court two international flights to Dubai and Sharjahan started from here but they don't provide much relief because of non-availability of further connectivity. So, people of adjoining areas have no option left but to reach New Delhi to take the flights to other destinations in the world.

Even after spending millions of rupees on the up gradation of Chandigarh Airport, it still lacks many necessary features and services which an international airport requires. However, Indian politicians look to have not learned any lessons from the earlier failures. It is important to first work on the airports which are already in operation than just announcing new airports. This money can be diverted to other parts where we need to improve the infrastructure or services. I am not against opening new airports but I just want that we should only open new airports when we properly take care of already available airports.
