Airports Authority of India To Reportedly Privatize Only Jaipur And Ahmedabad Airports

The government is going ahead with the privatization of only two airports - Ahmedabad and Jaipur - instead of the six originally planned, reported Times of India citing aviation ministry official. According to the civil aviation policy to be announced, the Kolkata and Chennai airports will be operated on management contracts awarded to private parties, while the privatization of Guwahati and Lucknow airports has been put on hold. A civil aviation ministry official, on condition of anonymity, said, "In the policy, we are announcing our airport privatization plans. Since the Airports Authority of India (AAI) has invested a lot of money in upgrading airports at Kolkata and Chennai they will be awarded on management contract." The official said that the policy would state that the airports in Jaipur and Ahmedabad will be awarded on public-private partnership. The official said, "The airports in Guwahati and Lucknow have been put off the list for the time being. We may decide to take it up at a later stage." A source in a private airport also echoed concerns over AAI staff. The source said, "While management contract is something that can be considered, managing AAI staff will be a difficult task. All these aspects need to be seen and a final decision can only be taken only after the policy is defined."
