Pune airport committee may discuss land transfer issue today

Pune: Issues related to defence land transfer and shifting of the cargo hold area could be taken up at the Pune Airport Advisory Committee meeting scheduled on Wednesday.

Aviation experts and frequent flyers, however, stressed on the need to address crowding and parking-related issues first.

Pune MP and advisory committee chairman Girish Bapat will preside over the meeting, to be held after a gap of more than a year. Stakeholders, including members of the business community, defence, Airports Authority of India, airlines and others will participate in the meeting.

“Some of the important points that would be discussed in the meeting include the defence land issue, which has to be transferred to the Pune airport authorities for expansion of the facility, and the shifting of the existing cargo hold area among others. A stock will be taken on the progress of the new terminal building project and the multilevel parking lot. Discussion on new flights and international routes is a possibility too,” an airport official said.

An airport source said the issues to be discussed on Wednesday were discussed in the last meeting too.
