AAI Moots Airport Runway Extension


The new proposal will be confined to extending the runway length without disturbing the runway strip at 75 metres on either side. In what could come as a relief to NRIs in the Malabar region, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) has proposed to extend the runway length of the Calicut International Airport from 2,850 m to 3,500 m. The move comes close on the heels of an earlier plan to reduce the runway length to 2,700 m so as to increase the Runway End Safety Area (RESA). The Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) wanted the AAI to increase the RESA to 240 m and runway strip to 150 m at the airport. However, the new proposal would be confined to extending the runway length without disturbing the runway strip at 75 metres on either side, sources told The Hindu on Thursday. For this purpose, the AAI has proposed to the State government to acquire 96 acres of land. Initially, the requirement for expansion was 485 acres , As Reported By Hindu.  Read More…
