Construction work of airport’s new terminal building to start on October 20

Pune: The construction of the Rs423-crore new terminal building at Lohegaon airport would begin from October 20.
Pune MP Anil Shirole, the chairman of the Pune Airport Advisory Committee, and airport director Ajay Kumar made this announcement on Saturday besides claiming that several new facilities would be introduced for flyers in the next three months.
Shirole said the new terminal building would be constructed on 42,000sqm area. “While Rs800 crore has been sanctioned for the purpose, implementation of development projects worth Rs358 crore will start on October 20. Lohegaon airport initially had 26 acres of land. In April this year, a total of 16 acres of defence land was provided for the airport’s development after continuous follow-up. We need additional space of about 35 acres for building cargo parking with the administrative and residential purposes,” he said.
Rs800 crore is the total investment on the project, including the multi-level car parking and another building that will come up later after availability of land.
Airport director Kumar said the new terminal building would have a basement, ground floor and first floor.
