Since Chandigarh Airport is a domestic airport people wanting to travel beyond the Indian shore first have to travel to Delhi and catch international flights from there. To mitigate such a situation an international airport is being built in Jheorehri village located in the outskirts of Ajitgarh.  The airport is being jointly financed by the Airport Authority of India, Government of Punjab and Government of Haryana.

The international airport at Ajitgarh is being built over 305 acres of land and all the modern facilities have been incorporated in the plan. It has a terminal measuring 60591 sq meters, four aerobridges, parking bay for eight aircrafts, night landing facilities etc.  Moreover, the airport will have a capacity for 1600 passengers. For their comforts air-conditioned lounge, restaurants, bars etc have also been incorporated in the project.

While the Airport Authority of India has 51% stake in the airport, the governments of Punjab and Haryana have 24.5 % each. The airport, which is still unnamed, is scheduled to be opened in March 2015.
