Maha’s Sindhudurg airport may get int’l charter flights

Mumbai: The Rs 520-crore Sindhudurg airport in the state is likely to receive international charter flights, besides domestic scheduled services.
The greenfield airport, on which most of the work is completed, is being constructed at Parule Chipi in the Sindhudurg district of the state by IRB Sindhudurg Airport on a design-build-finance-operate-transfer basis for the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation.

“The trial flight at Sindhudurg Airport will be conducted in October. We are also expecting a chartered flight at Sindhudurg from Malta in December,” State tourism minister Jaykumar Rawal said after a meeting with his Malta counterpart Konrad Mizzi here today.
