Most eagerly awaited and anticipated, Surat Airport is Now Open for Business.  Yes, Dear Surtis this is the most remarkable day in the history of Surat.  A Milestone achieved.  Great work to all the people who were involved behind getting and Opening up the Airport.   Politics aside, BJP or Congress whoever was responsible for this, Thank you.  Surtis will be forever indebted to this facility and convenience.

Connecting Surat to Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and hence to international flights is going to be the biggest boon to the local businesses of Surat and surrounding areas as a good percentage of traffic at Mumbai International Airport is provided by the Gujarati community of Surat, Bardoli, Navsari, Valsad etc.
