Goa: AAI seeks firm to manage car park

Panaji: The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has initiated the process to select a concessionaire to operate the Rs 50 crore multi-level car parking facility at Goa International Airport and to manage traffic in the arrival and departure lanes.
With the arrival and departure lanes at Goa International Airport best described as chaotic, AAI expects the move to streamline traffic at Goa’s lone airport.

AAI plans to have a lane management agency in place and also notify the parking fees by the year end, sources said.

“The commercial bidding process has started and once we have a contractor, we will open the car parking facility,” said Goa airport director Gagan Malik.

The parking facility has been lying idle for over four years after the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security refused to grant clearance citing security issues. Malik said that a blast protection wall has been built between the parking facility and the airport’s terminal bays.
“Whatever security norms were required we have met and now it’s just a matter of getting formal approval. By September end we will be able to have a better picture,” Malik said.
