Patna airport told to cut trees for safety

Patna : The civil aviation ministry has threatened to declare the Patna airport unfit for Airbus 320 and Boeing 737 aircraft unless trees near the airport are cut or pruned for aviation safety.

The ministry has sent a communication to this effect to the Bihar government, giving a deadline of June 15, official sources said Monday.

Airports Authority of India chairman V.P. Agrawal s letter to the Bihar chief secretary has made it clear that aviation safety is of paramount importance.

Bihar officials are busy chalking out a plan to act on the missive. A Patna airport official admitted that pruning and cutting of trees was vital for the safe landing and takeoff of aircraft.

According to the forest department, some 3,700 trees may have to be cut. These include semal, bamboo, amaltas, banyan, kusum and arjun trees.
