We all know that the Trichy airport is getting upgraded for handling bigger planes for increased cargo and passenger handling. Soon gone will be the days of a sleepy airport with a non descriptive building with a lonely tree with medai around it . The airport area is also going to get facelift around the terminal as well. The government is getting ready to invite some big names including Larsen & Toubro (L&T) Pratibha Industries, GMR Infrastructure and GVK Industries to modernise the city side of the airport. Though the date for inviting bids for non-metro airport modernisation has not been announced, looks like the process will start soon. The aviation ministry is coming up with a plan to group airports together for the bid so that the airports in less popular areas also will get benefited by this plan. So a company cannot bid only for the work in a potentially busy airport but also has to get involved in a non busy airport as well.
The plan is good . Hopefully we will see some activity soon.
