Chennai: Union Minister for Communications and Information Technology Dayanidhi Maran on Saturday said the Centre was exploring the possibility of shifting the site of the proposed Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Aeronautical Science and Training and Pilots Academy from Sriperumbudur to Vellore, as "operational and technical problems in the air corridor" over Sriperumbudur had been brought to its notice.
He was addressing a function at Raj Bhavan where a special postal cover was released by Tamil Nadu Governor S.S. Barnala to mark the commemoration of 75 years of Madras Flying Club.
He urged Southern Regional Executive Director of the Airports Authority of India (AAI) K. Ramalingam to work in tandem with the State government and the Centre for creating airport infrastructure not only in major international airports but also in tier II towns such as Tiruchi, Madurai and Coimbatore, and in lesser known idle airstrips.
