AAI unveils Rs. 400-cr airport expansion in Goa

    Airports Authority of India (AAI)
    The Airports Authority of India (AAI) targeted to invest Rs 400 crore for the expansion of the Dabolim International Airport in Goa, which includes extension of the existing passenger terminal building and construction of more parking bays, among others. This along with the setting up of a new international airport at Mopa in north Goa at a projected cost of Rs 3,000 crore, is expected to give a major boost to the tourism potential in the state, AAI sources said, adding that Dabolim International Airport, which is a civil enclave, handled over 7.5 million passengers last year and will continue catering to the growing demand for travel and tourism even after the Mopa airport becomes functional. The work includes extension of the terminal building, creation of parking bays and construction of parallel taxiway, which will ease traffic and help the airport operator handle more passenger and aircraft movements. Also, the airport will get in-line x-ray baggage system apart from a host of self-service kiosks and additional common user terminal equipment (CUTE) for enhancing the capacity and passenger throughput.
