Haryana CM Khattar on wednesday dedicated the state's first civil airport at Hisar to the people of Haryana, saying it would open the possibilities of creating an economic corridor and vibrant industrial ecosystem. He said a high-speed train would soon be started from Hisar to Delhi to improve connectivity to the international airport at New Delhi.

Khattar was addressing a press conference after inaugurating the Hisar Airport, integrated aviation hub, Phase-I at Hisar. Finance Minister Capt Abhimanyu and BJP state president Subhash Barala were also present on this occasion. 

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) was also signed between the state government and Spice Jet Limited which has shown keen interest for assistance in development of Phase-II and III of the integrated aviation hub. 

The integrated aviation hub is being developed in over 4,200 acres of land. The Civil Aviation Department has 600 acres of land and with the transfer of 3,600 acres by Animal Husbandry and Dairying Department today, the Civil Aviation Department would be officially the owner of 4,200 acres of land which sets the stage for Phase II and III planning and development, an official statement said. 
The chief minister assured that the state government could freeze the available land of other departments in case of additional requirement of land for the project. 
He said that the state government also plans to develop a cargo terminal, aero-space, defence university, defence MRO and aviation university in the second phase of the project. The Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the same is expected to be completed within the next 18 months.
