Consortium gets down to work at Mumbai airport

Mumbai: The GVK Group-led joint venture company, Mumbai International Airport Private Limited (MIAL), which was handed over the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport on Wednesday, is busy setting up office at the country’s busiest airport.
On day two of MIAL’s operations, Airports Authority of India (AAI) employees cleared furniture from the retiring rooms at the domestic terminal for the makeshift offices of the new management.
Significantly, the OMDA (Operations, Maintenance and Development Agreement)—the document signed between the AAI and the private consortium on April 4, which gave MIAL the right to operate, maintain, develop, design, construct, upgrade, modernise, finance, and most importantly manage the Mumbai airport—was formally handed over by AAI Chairman K Ramalingam, in a ceremony attended by airline staff and AAI top brass, on Wednesday at Terminal 2C.
