Main runway of Chennai airport to be closed for six hours daily till october

The main runway of Chennai airport will be closed for six hours daily till October due to infrastructure works being carried out in the airport.

According to a report in The Hindu, airport officials said that this closure will, however, not affect flight services to and from the airport since the secondary runway is equipped to handle the traffic.

The main runway will be closed from 12 pm to 6 pm till October and then from November, it will be closed from 10 am to 6 pm.

Developmental works have begun in the airport from Sunday including construction of new taxiways and strengthening of an existing taxiway which would help aircrafts exit at a higher speed than the usual.
As per airport officials, these works will help reduce airport congestion by reducing the time aircrafts spend on the runway. These will also help reduce delay in flights.
