Surat: The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has stated that the scope of work for expansion of terminal building at Surat airport has been approved and it is under detailed estimation stage at the central headquarters.
Following a report in TOI highlighting the inordinate delay in the expansion of the existing terminal building at Surat airport on February 8, an aware citizen wrote to AAI regarding the issue and he got a reply, which stated that the scope of work for expansion of the terminal building has been approved by the competent authorities, and was under detailed estimation stage at the central headquarters.
RTI activist Rajesh Modi told TOI, "Surat airport is operating 22 scheduled flights and 10 non-scheduled flights with monthly passenger capacity of 63,000. The AAI has taken a long time for calculating detailed estimates of the terminal building."
