Shravasti Airport is an upcoming airport, situated in Shravasti District in Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.[1] It is near an important Buddhist pilgrimage site; Buddha is believed to have spent 24 monsoons in this city. Age-old stupas, majestic monasteries and several temples near the village of "Sahet-Mahet" establish Buddha's association with Shravasti. Airport is developing by upgrading the existing government airstrip.[2][3] Under UDAN-II scheme, flights from Shravasti to Lucknow would be started soon.
