Charges soon for vehicles for pick-ups from airport

Pune: Vehicles entering the Pune airport to pick up passengers may soon have to pay some charges.
Pune airport director Ajay Kumar has said a new parking policy was being drafted for airports across the country managed by the Airports Authority of India (AAI).
“As part of the policy, vehicles entering the arrival area of an airport to pick up passengers will be charged a fee. The Pune airport had, in the past, a system to charge vehicles entering the premises to drop passengers and remaining parked for more than 7 minutes. The system was, however, scrapped,” Kumar said.
Sources at the airport said while people reaching the facility have to park their vehicles in the two dedicated slots, the plan is now to charge them if they drive into the premises and stayed there for some time.
