UT airport to be ready for night ops by March-end: HC

Runway Extension Work Expected To Be Completed By Feb


The Punjab and Haryana high court on Wednesday said that the Chandigarh airport will be ready for night operations by the end of March after instrument landing system (CAT-II) is installed.

The airport would also receive additional workforce from Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) by the end of February.

A report in this regard was submitted before the high court by senior advocate M L Sarin, who has been assisting the HC in the matter related to inadequate facilities at the local airport.

Giving information to the court about the meeting, which was held on December 15 at the UT guest house, he said that the work to extend the runway was going on full swing and was expected to be completed by the end of February.

At the meeting, Sarin said he pointed out that more exit points were needed at the airport to avoid congestion in the parking area. On this, the chief executive officer of CHIAL, Suneel Dutt, said that they were in the process of purchasing automatic machines and equipment for parking, which will reduce congestion and inconvenience caused to the public.

“Dutt also said that the authorities of Chandigarh International Airport were planning to remove eightminute restriction for dropping passengers,” Sarin told court.

The court was told that the authorities were working on IGI’s T-3 model in which there are no charges for dropping and receiving passengers.

Not only this, they are also working on providing online baggage screening system at the airport by the end of July. Increasing counters from 24 to 36 is also on the cards.

During the meeting, the officials of Jet airways said that they could think of starting international flights only after the installation of CATIII ILS.

A detailed report regarding the deliberations that had taken place during the meeting was also placed before the HC.

The matter is pending before the HC in the wake of a petition filed by Mohali Industries Association, seeking directions for more international flights from Chandigarh international airport.
