    GMR Airports
    In order to match the increasing demand for air passengers handling facilities at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad, the GMR group has drawn up plans for another runway and a new terminal at the airport. Among other things, metro rail link up to the airport is also being planned and in this connection, GM Rao, Chairman, along with senior officials met Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and discussed expansion plans, including the development of Airport City, a convention centre and metro rail link. The Chief Minister wanted Hyderabad Airport to be developed along with Airport City and an international convention centre. He was keen that the terminal gets extended and a second runway constructed in view of the rising passenger traffic at the airport. The airport, which started operations in 2008, handles over 400 flights daily and 17 million passengers passed through it last year. The existing runway and terminal are designed to serve up to 25 million passengers and that keeping the growth in mind, another terminal and a second runway are necessary. The Chief Minister would lay the foundation stone for the Airport City soon and will also participate in the decennial celebrations of the airport, said official sources.
