E-visa at Lohegaon airport from month-end

Pune: The e-visa facility would be launched at the Lohegaon airport in the last week of March and the Air Force would give 0.74 acre of land to the left of the facility's entry for widening the approach road.
The 0.74 acre plot is in addition to the defence land earmarked for the airport's development, subject to handing over of the required land by the state government to the Indian Air Force, said Jyoti Kadam, the sub-divisional magistrate of Haveli, Pune.
The two crucial decisions were taken at a meeting of the Airport Users' Consultative Committee and Airport Advisory Committee on Saturday morning. MP Anil Shirole, the chairman of the Airport Advisory Committee, chaired the meeting. Representatives of the state police, state administration, CISF, airlines, general aviation, trade and the Air Force attended it.
Several issues regarding the airport's development, including construction of the new integrated terminal building, reconstruction of the old terminal building and cargo complex, construction of apron (four aircraft parking bays), a link taxi track and provision for tensile canopy, highlighted by the airport director in his presentation, were discussed. A layout plan for the future development of the airport was also presented to the committee.
