India’s first general aviation terminal for private jets all set to begin operations at IGI Airport

The first general aviation terminal for private jets in the country that came up last month at Indira Gandhi International Airport in the national capital is all set to begin operations. It is waiting for the security nod before it can become operational, said sources.

It was tentatively due to be inaugurated on July 24 — is complete, but will be operationalised “as and when the government gives its approval”, said an official at the Delhi Airport. Two senior government officials stated that the facility was ready for use in terms of infrastructure and other facilities but is awaiting some security clearances from the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS).

Designed to ensure faster turnaround of business jets and chartered planes, the facility would shield them from the clutter of general passenger terminals, where they currently compete for taxiing slots with commercial flights.
