Request to Centre to speed up airport construction

The aviation regulator has requested the Centre to speed up construction of new airport terminals and additional airports near metro cities, voicing concern about an anticipated rise in congestion and lack of infrastructure at major aerodromes. According to officials in the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), airports in major cities appeared headed towards a clogged future amid plans by domestic airlines to acquire more aircraft and increase passenger load next year. As per DGCA estimates, scheduled commercial airlines are set to add at least 40 new and leased aircraft by next March and an additional 25 aircraft by end-2017.
