Airport is oblivious to green campaign

New Delhi: While the rest of the Capital has turned greener by switching over to compressed natural gas (CNG) for public transport, the international airport has not taken off on the Supreme Court directive even after more than six years.
A Delhi-based transport body, Indian Foundation of Transport Research and Training (IFTRT), has now given an ultimatum to the Airports Authority of India (AAI) to switch over to CNG or it will knock the doors of the apex court.
“At present, almost 70-80 per cent of the bus fleet at Indira Gandhi International airport remains to be diesel-run in total contravention of Apex court order,” charged IFTRT in a statement.
According to the organisation, AAI has not followed the deadline set by its belated notice dated November 24, 2005. The notice sent to airlines said entry to non-CNG coaches would be totally stopped from February 15, 2006.
