Sikkim to get its first airport this month
03 November 2017 Current Affairs: Sikkim is set to get its first airport by the end of November, over 30 kilometres from the state capital of Gangtok.

The airport, built at an estimated cost of Rs. 300 crore, was supposed to be completed in 2012 but faced repeated delays.

It is at an altitude of 4,700 feet, and will be among the five highest Indian airports.

Up until now, people travelling to and from Sikkim had to trek to Bagdogra in West Bengal to access the nearest airport.
