More aircraft parking bays on cards

Thiruvananthapuram: The Airports Authority of India (AAI) plans to construct four more aircraft parking bays at the international terminal (T-II) of the Thiruvananthapuram international airport to resolve the parking woes of operating airlines.

The work will be taken up at ₹30 crore.

The capacity enhancement is part of AAI’s ₹20,000-crore infrastructure upgrade plan to add 273 parking bays at 24 airports managed by it across the country.

With their commissioning, the number of parking bays in the international terminal here will go up to 13. The domestic terminal (T-I) on Shanghumughom side has 11 parking bays.
