Dabolim to offer air links to Kalaburagi, Nagpur

Vasco: Dabolim airport director S V T Dhanamjaya Rao said on Friday that the airport will soon offer connectivity to Kalaburagi in Karnataka, and to Nagpur in Maharashtra in winter.

Rao said, “Airports Authority of India (AAI) is expecting further improvement in charter and international flights at Dabolim international airport.” He added, “The coming season is expected to be good with 175 slots booked at Dabolim international airport by charter operators.”

The work on the expansion of Dabolim airport will be completed by May or June 2024, Rao said. He said that the footfall of domestic tourists will be increased to a great extent in the coming season.

“It is a rumour created by some vested interests that Dabolim airport will be closed. It will never be closed,” said minister for transport Mauvin Godinho on Friday. “It is one of the most prestigious airports and according to AAI, footfall here will never be reduced.”
