Sanjeev Kumar, Chairman, Airports Authority of India (AAI) has said that the fourth runway of Delhi’s IGI Airport should be ready for use by Q1, 2023, reports Times Now. The remaining remaining tasks including painting runway markers and calibration will be finished by the end of this December. By the beginning of 2023, the fourth runway should be in use, he said.
Only IGIA will have four runways in all of India. NATS, a UK-based air traffic management company, recently completed a capacity study for Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL), which revealed that its four runways can handle up to 14 crore passengers annually, more than double the 6.9 crore international-cum-domestic (both arrival and departure) numbers from the last year before the pandemic of 2019.
