Improve amenities at airport, Vizag chamber urges AAI

Vizagapatam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) has appealed to the Airports Authority of India to take concrete steps to improve amenities at the Visakhapatnam International Airport.

Regretting the ranking of the airport at the bottom in the survey conducted by Airports Council International recently, VCCI president A.V. Monish Row stated in an e-mail to the AAI Chairman that the airport, which had witnessed jump in number of flights under operations and traffic should get priority in improving the facilities.

He sought improvement in parking, passenger queuing time, amenities like restrooms, shopping and eating options, faster luggage retrieval and other improvements to give better experience to the people. This would enable better ranking of the airport, which has flights to international destinations like Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Colombo.

Mr. Row said the demand for air travel over the next two decades was set to double. Enabling people and nations to trade, explore, and share the benefits of innovation and economic prosperity would make the world a better place.
