The six airports which have been given green signal for private participation by the union cabinet recently are among the top earning airports of the Country. Airports including Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Mangaluru, Thiruvananthapuram, and Guwahati have been selected for operation, management and development through public private partnership.

According to information from the ministry of civil aviation, these six airports have revenue exceeding Rs 100 crores. While the income generated by the Airports authority of India from Ahmadabad airport was about Rs 374 crore in the year 2017-18, it was Rs 363 crore from Thiruvananthapuram airport.

Officials said that the plan for airports development, operation and management through PPP mode was earlier conceived in the UPA II regime during the end of the year 2013, however, it could not take off due to lack of consensus among different agencies including the planning commission and the ministry and the 2014 Lok Sabha polls was also approaching closer. Read more
