Tirupati MP Dr Gurumoorthy urges centre to establish Tirupati as an aircraft MRO hub without any delay

Tirupati: Tirupati MP Dr. Maddila Gurumurthy on Wednesday requested the civil aviation ministry to implement Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) centre of Tirupati airport, and increase air connectivity to the temple city under the UDAN Scheme.

Raising the issue in the Lok Sabha, the Tirupati MP recalled that the ministry of civil aviation assured several times that Tirupati international airport is one of the eight airports selected for establishing the MRO Centre, while Invest India also highlighted Tirupati's potential to become an MRO centre.

To make the country a hub for maintenance, repair and overhaul of aircraft, the ministry has earlier geared up to identify sites and invite bids for implementation of MRO at eight airports, including the Tirupati international airport. The Airports Authority of India was asked to identify the site for establishing the MRO centre at Tirupati.

Tirupati MP Gurumurthy urged the civil aviation ministry to appoint a special officer for speedy implementation of the MRO centre. He also asked the ministry for the launch of an international logistics project and increase of connectivity to Tirupati Airport under UDAN scheme.
