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.
