Goa airport upgrade: Govt to give Rs 500cr

Panaji: The central government has assured the state government of Goa that it will pump in Rs 500 crore to give a facelift to Dabolim airport.
In a bid to cope with growing air traffic congestion, particularly from charter flights, Airport Authority of India (AAI), in collaboration with the Indian Navy, had planned to build a new terminal with four aero-bridges to facilitate landing of wide-bodied aircrafts as part of strengthening the Dabolim airport at Goa.
Goa’s deputy chief minister, Wilfred de Souza, said that AAI would soon acquire nine acres of land from the Navy and start extending the airport besides pressing into service the instrument landing facility to operate in nights.
