Hyderabad airport adds four new rapid exit taxiways

Hyderabad: In a move that is set to enhance its runway capacity, four new Rapid Exit Taxiways (RETs) have been commissioned at Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA).

While the current runway capacity of the international facility stands at 36 aircraft per hour, the additions are likely to increase the movements to more than 45 aircraft per hour.

Along with this, the GMR Hyderabad International Airport Limited (GHAIL) has also successfully commissioned its primary runway after major rehabilitation works.

"The new RETs will improve operational efficiency. They are designed to allow aircraft to taxi off the runway at relatively shorter distances and, hence, increase runway capacity. In addition to this, rehabilitation will increase the Pavement Classification Number (PCN) and friction values of the runway, thereby enhancing safety of aircraft being operated,” a release issued by GHIAL stated.
