AAI to spend over Rs 7k cr in Tamil Nadu airports in three years

Sanjeev Jindal, Executive Director of AAI, told the media that the Airports Authority of India (AAI) has plans to spend over Rs 7,000 crore on airports in Tamil Nadu in the next three years.

He added that AAI is spending more in the Tamil Nadu aviation sector.

He also inspected the pace of the new passenger terminal building construction works at the Tiruchi international airport.

After Tamil Nadu, AAI had a target for Madurai, Thoothukudi and Coimbatore airports. The Authority has already called a consultant for Coimbatore airport and will acquire land at Coimbatore and Madurai.

Jindal said that the land had already been acquired at Thoothukudi airport, and works for runway extension, new terminal building, a new tower, and a new fire station were under construction.

He added that in the next two to three years, these three airports would be in a position to handle bigger aircraft.

The runway length at the Thoothukudi airport would be extended from 1,350 m to 3,115 m, appropriate for handling Airbus-321 aircraft. He said the AAI had plans to make 24 airports in India zero carbon emission buildings.
