New Delhi, September 17
Delhi worldwide airport on Thursday opened an unique terminal to deal with the flight operations of personal jets.
The terminal has 57 parking bays and might deal with as much as 150 personal jet flights per day. It was inaugurated by Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Thursday afternoon.
The minister stated the Delhi airport was dealing with round 40 “general aviation” flights per day earlier than the pandemic, and it’s at the moment dealing with round 20 such flights per day.
Flight operations of personal jets are categorized underneath the “general aviation” class.
“This terminal looks good. People like me use the other terminals (earmarked for commercial passenger flights) but those who use this terminal, I am sure their feedback – when they start using it – will also be very positive,” Puri stated.
“I am sure this (terminal) will be a small but significant boost to general aviation,” Puri added.
The new terminal has spacious passenger lounges, retail and meals and beverage sections and 24×7 private concierge companies, stated Delhi airport’s operator DIAL in a press launch on Thursday.
There is a standard processing space with customs and immigrations and there may be a right away entry to non-public jet plane stands from the terminal, the DIAL famous.
The terminal can deal with over 50 passengers each hour, acknowledged the GMR group-led DIAL. PTI
