Emirates to operate global flights from Vijayawada

For the interim period, the Vijayawada Airport authorities are modifying the old terminal building to accommodate international operations. Emirates Airlines is set to launch international flights to and from the Vijayawada international airport. It is the first operator to have initiated a dialogue regarding bilateral traffic rights with the Airports Authority of India (AAI). If all goes well, the flights could be operational from the first week of September. The AAI has decided to invite tenders for the appointment of a Project Management Consultant (PMC) to prepare the detailed project report for the construction of an integrated terminal building at Vijayawada. For the interim period, the Vijayawada Airport authorities are modifying the old terminal building to accommodate international operations.
According to a senior AAI officer, a bilateral Air Service Agreement (ASA) or Air Transport Agreement (ATA) is one whereby two nations allow their respective airlines to launch flights in each other’s territories. Bilateral rights are national assets; the two participating countries agree upon them not only enhance transport but also to deepen diplomatic ties.
