Ahmedabad: Runway resurfacing to start on schedule

Ahmedabad: The proposed recarpeting of the runway at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International (SVPI) airport in Ahmedabad is all set to begin on schedule i.e. from January 3, 2022, onwards.

The work, however, will remain suspended for three days, during which the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit (VGGS) will be held at Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar on January 10-12. SVPI airport authorities have received clearance in this respect from the aviation regulator, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

“The runway resurfacing is very much on track and will begin as scheduled from January 3, 2022 and conclude on May 31, 2022. During the three days of the VGGS 2022, when air traffic movement is expected to increase at the city airport, the resurfacing work will be suspended and resumed from January 13 onwards,” said a well-placed source privy to the development.

Business delegates from different parts of the country and world in addition to several world leaders tend to attend the VGGS 2022 – the bi-annual investment summit hosted by the government of Gujarat. During this period, the city airport sees movement of several private aircraft and charters too in addition to scheduled commercial operations.
