Biju Patnaik airport to get 3-star hotel soon

Bhubaneswar:  The Biju Patnaik International Airport will soon have a high-end three-star hotel outside the operational area to provide accommodation and other services to passengers, officials, tourists and staff.
The airport authorities on Friday floated a request for proposal (RFP), inviting private parties to submit their proposals according to set norms. The Airports Authority of India (AAI) will provide an acre of land adjacent to the current car parking area of the airport. The private party will construct the hotel at its own cost and maintain it for 30 years, airport sources said.
"After getting the proposals, we will invite tenders. The private party for the project will be selected on the basis of competitive bidding. Whichever party quotes higher revenue to be paid to the airport will be selected," said airport director Suresh Chandra Hota.
