Coming Soon: Private Jet terminal at Delhi's IGI Airport

The national capital's Indira Gandhi International Airport will soon sport a dedicated terminal for private jets by early next year, a senior company official has said.

The GMR Group's Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL) has "concessioned-out" the project to build the terminal and other facilities which are expected to be ready by January 2020.

DIAL is a consortium led by the GMR Group along with the Airports Authority of India. It has been mandated to operate and manage the IGIA.
"We are fast progressing with the development of new general aviation facilities, these comprise aircraft parking stands, hangar and a Fixed Based Operator (FBO) terminal facility," a senior DIAL company official told IANS here.

"The construction of aircraft parking stands is nearing completion and these will be commissioned post the necessary approvals by early 2020."

Globally, FBO facilities aide in the expansion of general aviation services at busy airports around the world as they provide designated terminal for users of private jets and charter flights.

Besides the FBO, DIAL has already kicked off the next phase of expansion at the IGIA. This phase is expected to enable IGIA to handle 100 million passenger per annum (MPPA) in the next three years.
