Domestic Private Carriers Now Can Do Ground Handling


In a move to promote domestic airline operators, including helicopter service providers, the Ministry of Civil Aviation has allowed all scheduled domestic operators to do self-handling at all domestic airports.

While reiterating the decision to allow third-party ground handling at all airports, the Ministry said with a minimum of three operators at airports, it will result into catering to at least 10 million passengers per annum. At the same time, all foreign carriers have been allowed to do their own pre-security ground handling at all airports excepting Defence airports. However, the Ministry has mandated that all ground handling staff must be regular employees of the airline and not contractual or provided by manpower service providers.

Generally, all ground-handling agencies, duly approved by the Civil Aviation Ministry as well as Civil Aviation Authorities, work day and night in all airports in India to cater to various services to the passengers who fly down to domestic as well as international locations. Read More…
