In Dubai, a minister asked airlines to shift operations to Mopa: Elvis

Vasco: Congress leader Elvis Gomes, expressing concern over future of Dabolim airport, came down heavily on the government for misleading Goans on the airport operations.

He said the government itself was throwing its weight behind Mopa airport which would be detrimental to functioning of Dabolim airport. Pointing out to the claim made by him last month about impending shift of Air India operations from Dabolim to Mopa, which turned out to be true despite denial by government sources, Gomes said that more shockers were in store for Dabolim.

“At the Arabian Travel Mart held in Dubai in May this year, a minister was personally exhorting representatives of other international operators flying from Dabolim to move operations to Mopa with scant regard for the people of Goa who are already facing inconvenience due to shift of Air India. 

He added that Mopa operations will be 30 to 40% costlier for the flyers then what it is at Dabolim.
