Indian Airports to come up with Leisure facilities soon

Back to news

Airports in India would soon have leisure facilities such as golf courses, hotels, sports complex and convention centres like those in top metros around the world.

This is a new proposal focused to improve the revenues of the Airports Authority of India (AAI), which is suffering losses with increased expenditures every year. With the AAI presently developing modern airports at Kolkata and Chennai and 31 non-metro cities, the expenditure is on steep rise. To cover this additional cost burden this initiative is mooted by the expert committee.  

This proposal is floated by an Empowered Group of Ministers headed by finance minister Pranab Mukerjee and is understood to be considered to allow commercial activity of non-aeronautical nature on airport land. Internationally, up to 60% of the airport land can be used for commercial purposes.

But, in India only 30% of that land is being used for commercial purposes. Whether the project will be in public-private partnership mode or totally private or totally AAI owned will be worked once the proposal gets an official stamp.
