DIAL constructed two overhaul maintenance, repair hangers

After one-and-half years of India’s first dedicated General Aviation (GA) terminal became operational at Indira Gandhi International Airport, the Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) constructed two state-of-the-art maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) hangars.

These overhaul hangars, spreading across 2,000 sqm, serve the business jet planes and general aviation and can accommodate almost 6-8 mid-sized aircraft.

The two concessionaires, including Bird Execujet Airport Services Private Limited and Indamer MJets Airport Services Private Limited, operate the GA terminal, was inaugurated in September 2020.

According to DIAL, the new overhaul hangars will save time and money for the operators and also reduce environmental pollution to a large extent.

Earlier, GA aircraft and business jets had to burn fuel to travel an 8-10 km stretch to undergo maintenance at hangars near terminal one (T1). These aircraft also had to cross one active runway while reaching the old hangers near T1, resulting in wastage of time and fuel. However, the old hangers at T1 have already been dismantled.

CEO of DIAL, Videh Kumar Jaipuriar, said that DIAL is the pioneer in creating world-class airport infrastructure. Its dedicated GA facility, GA Terminal and aircraft parking bays was the first of its kind in India. This facility has positioned India with some of the world’s best airports.

He said that the airport developed dedicated MRO hangars with world-class facilities near the GA terminal, which are also the first type in the country.

He added that the facility would not just benefit the aircraft operators but also helps Delhi Airport to achieve its environmental sustainability goals.

These hangars also have around 4,600 sq m of the front maintenance holding area for accommodating aircraft needing minor repair works.
