Turbulence may hit Dabolim airport this tourism season

Panaji: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant’s assurance to retain existing international flights at Dabolim airport could fall flat, and its impact will be evident from the upcoming tourist season starting October 2023.

A significant setback is the decision by TUI Airways, one of the world’s largest airlines, to shift all its charters bringing UK passengers to the new airport -- the Manohar International Airport (MIA) at Mopa.

Another major airline, Moscow-based Aeroflot, also has plans to bring its charter flights to MIA. It's not about the charter flights only, even scheduled flights are opting for MIA over Dabolim.

The competition between the two airports has raised concerns not only among stakeholders operating around Dabolim airport but also among all South Goa legislators who also raised the matter during the ongoing session of the Legislative Assembly.
