Bhopal airport to get 16 new aprons in 3 years

Bhopal: Air connectivity from Bhopal is all set to soar with enhanced services and frequency of flights as 16 new aprons will be added in the next three years. The Airports Authority of India (AAI) have already approved the proposal. Thus, Raja Bhoj Airport, Bhopal will have a total of 33 aprons almost doubling the present 17.

Director airport, Anil Vikram confirmed to TOI that the Bhopal airport has recently received approval from AAI for the new aprons.
Airport apron or parking stand is part of an airport, other than the maneuvering area intended to accommodate loading and unloading of passengers and cargo, refueling, servicing, maintenance and parking of aircraft, and any movement of aircraft, vehicles and pedestrians necessary for such purposes.

The apron is not usually open to the general public and a permit may be required to gain access. The use of the apron may be controlled by the apron management service (apron control or apron advisory) to provide coordination between the users.
We have 17 small and big aprons at the airport presently,” said Vikram. He added that the construction of the new 16 aprons will be done in next 2-3 years.
