Private Airport Operators Urge Government To Bar AAI From Bidding For PPP Projects


Private airports have urged the government to bar the Airports Authority of India (AAI) from bidding for public-private partnership or PPP in any new airport project on the grounds that this will defeat the purpose of attracting private investment in the sector.

The Association of Private Airports Operator has made a request to the aviation ministry in this regard, officials said.

“Once the project is awarded to the AAI, no private funding will come into it and the whole purpose of getting private funding will get defeated,” a senior executive at a private airport operator said on condition of anonymity. “Also, the government does not need to call for bids for the project and can directly award the project to the AAI if it wants.” Read More…
