Sambalpur, April 8: Taking into consideration the growing demand for an airport at Jharsuguda, the Union government has decided to renovate the existing one around 50km from here.

The government has decided to opt for a public-private partnership for the work. SREI, a Calcutta-based finance company, has expressed interest and is negotiating with the government in this regard, sources said. “No final decision has been taken. A confirmation has been sought from Airport Authority of India. Their decision will be final,” said works secretary S.K. Ray.
