Earlier on 16 September 2021, the Mint had reported that Adani Group has asked the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to shorten the time frame for partial shutting of operations at the Ahmedabad airport, which was initially scheduled to take place between November 2021 and May 2022.
The Adani Group had reached out to the DGCA in September to delay the partial shutdown of the airport in view of an expected revival in passenger traffic during this year’s festive season. It had then said that the rehabilitation work will focus on runway overlaying, runway strip grading and slope assessment, runway end safety area (RESA) grading and slope assessment, along with stormwater drain construction and reinstallation of signages on manoeuvring area, the Mint report added.
