Modi was travelling to Sikkim to inaugurate the state's first airport in Pakyong. He was accompanied by Chief Minister Pawan Chamling and Union Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu at the event. The foundation stone for the airport was laid in 2009. Spread over 200 acres of land, the airport is slightly over 30 km away from Gangtok and is situated around 60 km away from the Indo-China border. It is a part of the Government of India's UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik) programme, connecting remote and far located regions of India.
Significantly, this will be India's 100th airport which the PM proudly calls a 'century', "For the past four years, a government minister visits the north-east. You are witnessing the result of this effort," he said.
