Visakhapatnam Airport has been playing a major role in drawing the attention of people to boost the tourism sector. Now, the tourism calculations might slide down as there are chances that there will be 5 hours restriction in the running of flights every day from November 1. According to the reports, initiatives are in progress for training the fighter pilots in Visakhapatnam airport runway other than the timings allowed for running of the flights. Visakhapatnam West MLA and government whip P Ganababu alleged that the Centre is trying to cripple the state’s financial capital of Vizag by imposing restrictions. On the other hand, BJP MLC Madhav said since beginning Visakhapatnam is a defence airport. However, BJP MLC has tried to assure the people that they will convince the center to see that public may not be affected due to service restriction.
