Adani Group to Operate MBB Airport in Agartala, Tripura From 2022

Agartala: The Maharaja Bir Bikram Airport (MBB) in Agartala, is all set to be administered commercially under a PPP model by the Adani Group from 2022. According to an AAI official, the Adani group would take over Agartala's much-hyped completely unified terminal building (NITB) soon after the ceremonial opening. The Airport Authority of India (AAI) is trying to monetize 25 airports, including Bhubaneshwar, Varanasi, Amritsar, Trichy, Indore, Raipur, Calicut, Coimbatore, Nagpur, Patna, Madurai, Surat, Ranchi, Jodhpur, Chennai, Vijayawada, Vadodara, Bhopal, Tirupati, Hubli, Imphal, Arunachal Pradesh.

According to a source in the Ministry of Civil Aviation, all 25 airports would be administered jointly under the PPP model starting in 2022 for the next four years, with the ambitious goal of attracting investment worth more than Rs 20,000 crores.

Despite the airport's PPP status, the ministry stated that the airport's ownership must remain completely with the government.
