Airports to become world-class! AAI hikes capital expenditure significantly to upgrade infrastructure


From privatisation of well-served airports to upgrade of the infrastructure at several others, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) has its task cut out if it is to meet the challenges of the world’s fastest growing aviation market.
