International flights between Srinagar and Sharjah will be added to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) very soon.

Jammu and Kashmir will find its foot on the international aviation map, as the Ministry of Civil Aviation recently gave the green light to start the first commercial flight services between the two destinations.

Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia while addressing a joint press conference with Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha said that this will be a historic step for both Jammu and Kashmir and its people. He also said that this will facilitate foreign tourists to reach Srinagar directly.

Sharjah was chosen as the first destination given the huge amount of trade between the two destinations. An official related to this information said that the immigration infrastructure has already been prepared in Jammu and Kashmir.

He also said that since there is a high demand for business-related travel between Srinagar and Sharjah, these places will also serve as a convenient transit point to reach Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

The Civil Aviation Minister also said that Srinagar airport is likely to resume international flight operations soon, and the terminal at Srinagar airport will be increased from 25000 square meters to 63000 square meters.
