Fully Committed To Launching Civilian Flights From Ratnagiri’s Defence Airport, Says Minister Suresh Prabhu


Union Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu has stated that the government was committed to launching civilian flights from the defence-ministry controlled Ratnagiri airport soon, reports Press Trust of India (PTI).

“We are fully committed to start civilian operations from Ratnagiri at the earliest,” Prabhu said. “To speed up the construction of civil terminal and navigation facilities, the AAI is ready to work with the Maharashtra State Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC),” he added.

Prabhu also stated that bids under the third phase of the government’s flagship regional connectivity scheme have already been invited for operations along the Ratnagiri-Mumbai-Ratnagiri sector.

While MIDC has been tasked with putting in place basic infrastructure like the passenger terminal, apron and taxiway, Airports Authority of India will install the navigational infrastructure. Read More
