Amritsar’s Airport is not Raja Sansi Airport. It is now Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee International Airport

March 3rd, 2011

It had been a long pending demand to name the Rajasansi International Airport after the founder of the city and fourth Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Ram Das. A few other suggestions were Shaheed Bhagat Singh International Airport and Amritsar International Airport, but the Cabinet gave its nod to SRI GURU RAM DAS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

Why do Amritsar websites still mention Rajasansi Airport as Amritsar’s airport ? Even in flights to Amritsar, the full name of the airport is not announced. When will an air hostess in a plane landing in Amritsar announce, “We will shortly be landing at Sri Guru Ram Dass Ji International Airport ?”.
