Agra tourism is groaning since a couple of years on account of the dwindling footfalls of tourism. There have been various reasons for this such as the recession of the international and domestic level, the internet problems of the country, pollution in Delhi, women’s safety and so many other issues. But the first and foremost problem is the air connectivity problem. The Agra city airport has very few flights and thus those tourists who have lack of time or those want to avoid the Hassel of road or train journey are not able to visit the city.
The central government planned for regional air connectivity and declared to provide the flights that can connect the Taj Mahal city to various metro cities and tourist destinations of India. This move if done in time can save Agra tourism and provide oxygen to the tourism of Agra. So far Agra city is drawing the flight to Khajuraho and Jaipur only.
