A special plane of US army is said to have landed at Jaipur airport on Saturday amidst the possibilities of landing of special flight carrying President of US Donald Trump in India at Jaipur Airport in case of inclement weather.
Sources informed that Trump may land in Jaipur if the weather in Delhi is poor. His flight may land in Jaipur airport in such circumstances.
In wake of this, the special plane arrived on Saturday morning at about 9:30 am.
Earlier, during the week, US Embassy’s three-member team had visited the Jaipur airport. This visit was followed by another visit by a four-member team next day to check on infrastructure and other facilities.
Given the close proximity of Jaipur airport from Delhi and availability of infrastructure required for landing of such special aircrafts, Jaipur airport in past too has been on the list as alternative airport for landing of VIP visits in case of inclement weather in Delhi.
In winters many routine flights are diverted to Jaipur when the weather turns poor and foggy in Delhi.
Notably, US President Donald Trump will embark on a two-day visit to India from February 24 during which he will travel to New Delhi and Ahmedabad.
