More delays likely at Ahmedabad airport

AHMEDABAD: The Ahmedabad airport runway ordeal is not over yet for Amdavadis.

After six months of extensive runway resurfacing, pumping in crores of rupees last year that led to cancellation or rescheduling of flights, the runway had to be repaired thrice during the rains, upsetting flights and unsettling passengers, reports Ahmedabad Mirror.

Brace yourself again for unending queues, unbearable loos and inadequate seats at the airport between February and April next year when the runway is likely to remain closed during the day for resurfacing.

Close to 30 flights that operate during the day are likely to get rescheduled keeping non-operational runway time in focus causing further congestion for passengers during morning and evening hours.

Ahmedabad has 3.505 km long and 45 metre wide main runway that was resurfaced at the cost of about Rs 25 crore in 2016.

After rains had dented the runway thrice between June and July this year, the Airports Authority of India had ordered an inquiry and found the resurfacing work to be shoddy.
