Airport multi-level parking facility likely to open in November

Panaji:  The airports authority of India (AAI) expects the Rs50 crore, multi-level car park at Goa International Airport to be ready by early November. Officials are yet to finalise a date for the much-needed car park to be thrown open for use by the public, AAI officials said.
The Rs 50-crore parking facility was built three years ago and was supposed to be inaugurated in December 2017, but it missed the deadline as the bureau of civil aviation security, declaring it a security and safety risk for aircraft, withheld approvals. Sources in the AAI said that after wide-ranging consultations, it was decided to build a blast protection wall between the parking facility and the airport’s terminal bays.

“Work is progressing smoothly. By end October or a week after that, the car park should be ready,” airport director Bhupesh Negi said.
