AAI seeks various clearances from Environment Ministry for expansion of 5 airports

Airports Authority of India (AAI) has sought various clearances from the Environment Ministry for expansion of five airports, including Vijayawada, Lucknow and Patna, involving an investment outlay of Rs 3,258 crore.
According to the minutes of meeting of the latest expert appraisal committee (EAC) under the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, the AAI sought environmental clearance for Patna, Lucknow, Dehradun and Jabalpur airports.
It also requested the ministry to prepare terms of reference for the Vijayawada airport expansion programme.
The AAI intends to construct a new terminal building T3 for Lucknow airport after dismantling Terminal 1 to cater to the increasing number of international and domestic passengers as the capacity of the present ones has neared saturation point.
A multi-level car parking and allied facilities are also proposed.
