Terminal For Chartered Planes To Come Up Near T3 At Delhi Airport


A dedicated terminal for chartered aircraft at Delhi airport may not come up soon due to security concerns over use of runway 9-27 by small planes. Delhi airport has three runways — 9-27, 10-28 and 11-29. Of these 9-27 is the shortest and mostly used by VIPs, including the Prime Minister and the President. Delhi airport operator, DIAL, had proposed a dedicated terminal and parking bays for private jets near runway 9-27 so that business travellers can just walk into their aircraft.But security officials said the operation of private chartered flights from the same area may compromise the safety of protectees and suggested shifting of the proposed terminal. Sources said the airport operator is now looking for a new site for the terminal. Among options for the new facility are a site near Terminal 3 , As Reported By Hindustan Times.  Read More…
