AAI issues tender for parking, lane mgmt at Surat airport

Surat: The chaos around parking space inside the Surat international airport will soon be passé as visitors will have to pay and park their vehicles on the premises. After a long delay, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) finally issued tenders for vehicle parking and lane management system at the airport.

In a report dated January 11, 2021, TOI had highlighted the plight of visitors to the airport owing to haphazard parking of vehicles inside the ‘free parking lot’. Sources said that about 200 cars and more than 100 two-wheelers occupy the parking area throughout the day sans any clear demarcation of category.

Post-lockdown, Surat airport is connected by nearly 15 flights daily, and an average 4,500 passenger travelling to and from Surat every month.

Official sources said that while the vehicle parking contract at the airport was to be operational from May-20, it didn’t happen owing to the coronavirus pandemic. Sources said that the AAI had invited tender for the parking and lane management pre-Covid contract. However, it did not receive a single application from any contractor.
