Indore: Hotels, multi-level parking, convention centre at airport

Indore: Airport Authority of India (AAI) chairman Dr Guruprashad Mohapatra on Wednesday said that the city airport will boast of more passenger facilities, including top-of-line hotels, convention centre, multi-level parking and dedicated road to airport. He said that AAI and state agencies would prepare a comprehensive blue print of the project by November 15. All these facilities would come up on 28 acres to be provided to AAI by the district administration.
During daylong visit, Mohapatra along with AAI planning department members and airport director held a meeting with officials of district administration, IMC, IDA, Town and Country Planning. He said that availability of 28 acres has lent fresh impetus to airport expansion plan.
AAI chairman said that during a phone call, collector Nishant Warwade had agreed to offer the land but wanted a discussion on AAI planning as the district administration was keen on installing a statue of Devi Ahilya Bai Holkar. Mohapatra said that said that all above-mentioned facilities were common requirement of an airport. “If we want to operate the airport 24X7 instead of existing 6am-7pm then a lot of things will be required,’ he said.
