Enough space for more parking bays: jet owners

Business jet owners have countered Mumbai International Airport Ltd’s (MIAL) contention that the airport does have enough space to build more parking bays.

In a report on business aviation in India, the Business Aircraft Operators Association (BAOA), which represents 78 stakeholders, has claimed that contrary to repeated statements by MIAL, the airport has enough space to accommodate business jets.

The report says that the isolated Lima bay, at the northern end of the Mumbai airport, is sparingly used due to its distance from the passenger terminals.

“This parking bay is located close to the business aviation bay/business aviation terminal, and should be offered to operators for aircraft parking. A joint committee should be set up for devising procedures and assessing any work that may be needed,” BAOA has recommended.

BAOA, which claims to be the unified voice of business and general aviation, has, among others, Reliance Industries, Tata Group, Aditya Birla Group, DLF, and Essar Group as its members.
