Promising to provide best facilities to the Amrtisar international airport, Rajya Sabha member Shwait Malik said it was surprising the way revenue earned from cargo dipped between 2011 and 2014.

Malik, after holding a detailed meeting with the airport officials, said the airport earned Rs 1.7 crore revenue in 2011-2012, which dipped to Rs 15.6 lakh in 2015-16.

The MP said the Centre was committed to equip the airport with top facilities, while promising a grant of Rs 200 crore in coming months.

“The first floor of the terminal building will be getting a major facelift. It will also have two more aerobridges,” he said.
