According to Tourism Guild, the new terminal will allow international airlines to operate direct flights to Agra. The tourists will not have to land at New Delhi and then travel to Agra to see the world famous Taj Mahal.
Land for the terminal was acquired by the UP government from farmers in Dhanauli village and handed over to the airports authority.
The new terminal is expected to give a boost to the tourism industry in the historic district.
