Here is a news that's gonna make Devotees of Shirdi Sai jump in joy. From now, Pilgrims can use flight services to travel to Shirdi.
Generally, People visiting Shirdi used to rely on transportation facilities such as car, bus & train until recently. Why because, There is no airport anywhere closer to this famous pilgrimage spot. Pilgrims used to land at Aurangabad airport or Mumbai airport, from there they used to travel a long distance using other transportation facilities to reach Shirdi.
Keeping the demand in mind, A Green-field Airport is being established in 400 hectares of Kakdi Village with a budget of Rs 350 crore. This airport is just 14 km away from Shirdi and it would be the most preferred choice of the devotees.
The new Airport will boost the Tourism of Shirdi. More number of people would be travelling to this beautiful place from now onwards as the travelling time got minimized.
