Night Landing Facilities Getting ready at Mangalore Airport

Mangalore: The Union Civil Aviation Ministry, which is examining the possibility of introducing a network of "chartered flights" in the country, is likely to feature Mangalore on the network. According to sources in the Airports Authority of India here, Mangalore airport will have enough facilities for chartered flights to land.
The airport will have night landing facilities after expansion. This is expected to boost the traffic of national and international chartered flights in Mangalore and the west coast.At present, only Mumbai, Ahemdabad, Baroda, Goa and Kochi on the west coast get chartered flights.
But if Mangalore becomes a chartered flights destination, then the entire west coast will get connected and tourism will get a boost, he said.
