Three more airports to get DGCA licence for safety standard

New Delhi: The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is in the process of issuing licenses to three airports based on their security compliance after granting similar licenses to those in Delhi and Mumbai.
"The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has submitted applications for airports at Kolkata, Chennai and Thiruvananthapuram. The paper work is on. We are inspecting these airports as part of the due process to grant them licenses," said DGCA's director general Kanu Gohain.
Under the new international aviation standards, individual airports have to avail licenses on the basis of their maintaining safety and security standards. Mr Gohain said the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) also audits airports and all related facilities.
