Some non metro airports which were included in the plans to do the city side improvements in addition to the airport improvements may miss the opportunity due to issues in acquiring the land for building amenities. Fortunately, Trichy airport is NOT one of them. The ones that are being excluded are Agatti, Agra, Chandigarh, Jammu, Pune, Dehradun, Goa, Raipur, Bhubaneswar, Port Blair and Udaipur.
The city side developments include construction of hotels, convention centres, food court, flight kitchens, petrol pumps, hospitals, shopping malls, hyper marts, golf courses and cargo warehouse.
AAI also says that it will complete all works associated with terminal buildings at Trichy within the current financial year.
