The Airports Authority of India (AAI) asked the airlines on Tuesday to inform them if there was any change in their aircraft acquisition plans so that it can alter their airport infrastructure development projects, according to A high official.
According to an industry estimate, airlines in India have accelerated their aircraft acquisition plans. They will add at least 30 aircraft until December, of which 20 will be added in the first week of November.
I would like to go to IndiGo and other airlines that, when these acquisition plans change, let us know, so that we can also correct the course where it is important, said Vineet Gulati, member (Air Navigation Services), AAI, in New Delhi.
I was answering a question about whether an adequate airport infrastructure is being developed to absorb the capacity of the aircraft that the airlines are adding.
Regarding the infrastructure of the airport, for the past three years, we have been in active consultation with all airlines about their acquisition plans, Gulati said at an event, Smart Safe Secure Skies, organized by FICCI and French electronics. Thales conglomerate.
He added that AAI knows the airlines' long-term acquisition plans, but if there is any immediate change in those plans, the authority should be informed.
AAI owns and manages more than 100 airports throughout the country.
If you are going to import a plane, where are you going to park it? That is what we are focusing on. In the last three years, we have built 400 parking spaces. We are on our way to the airport infrastructure, he added. Gulati said that even in air navigation services, AAI is well aligned and could meet all capacity requirements.
