Key airports' capacity to get saturated in 10 years

New Delhi: The Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation has said that key airports in the country will saturate in the next ten years and the government needs to start planning for alternative airports in the cities.
The report by the aviation think tank says that Bangalore and Hyderabad will saturate by FY26, Delhi and Kolkata will saturate by FY23 and Mumbai and Chennai will saturate by FY18.

"The government needs to consider this issue from a national interest perspective: Total airport traffic is forecast to grow from 190 million passengers in FY2015 to 556 million on FY2025. This will place immense pressure on metro and non-metro airports," CAPA said in its report.
