AAI likely to overhaul Goa airport’s parking policy

Panaji: Airports Authority of India (AAI) has decided to review the parking plan at Goa International Airport, Dabolim and is even exploring the possibility of removing the five minute limit for private vehicles, entering the airport area.
AAI has appointed a consultant to calculate the revenue generated for levying a fee on vehicles spending more than five minutes free time at the terminal arrival and departure ramp. “The policy is being reviewed and a new parking policy is under consideration,” airport director Bhupesh C H Negi said. The airport director said that AAI had received a lot of criticism about the five-minute limit on private vehicles.

“One of the reasons for vehicles exceeding the time is haphazard parking by taxis and other vehicles. Once the haphazard parking in the exit lane has been streamlined, the situation will be better,” Negi said.

AAI has asked the consultant to study the current parking situation, the revenue collected for seven days and then submit a report. AAI wants to find out the total monthly revenue generated through the existing car parking management service along with a break-up of the revenue from commercial vehicles and private vehicles separately.
