DMK MP Baalu chairs AAC meet at Chennai International Airport

Chennai, Mar 18 (UNI) The Airport Advisory Committee (AAC) meeting was convened under the Chairmanship of Thiru T. R. Baalu, Member of Parliament (LS), at Chennai International Airport today to review the developmental aspects and other points pertaining to passenger facilitation of Airport. The meeting discussed broadly on the terminal & airside development and the progress of works in hand.
The meeting commenced deliberating on issues concerning the Chennai Airport modernisation project, airside enhancement works, clearing of obstacles and acquisition of land pockets identified for development. The Modernisation phase II, which is underway will be able to cater to 35 MPPA, which is a seamless increase from the existing capacity of 17 MPPA. However, in consonance with the terminal capacity increase, airside works are progressing well to meet the demand and the land pockets which are already identified and needed to be acquired for further development. Commissioning of the Bravo taxiway, Rapid Exit Taxiway (RET) -3, R & N Taxiways have quickened aircraft movement between runway(s) and apron(s) and with commissioning of RET 01, the peak hour aircraft handling capacity is expected to go up from 36/hr to 45/hr.
Chairman, AAC advised to convene a meeting of defence authorities and state government for handing over of defence land to AAI for airside development and instructed the special DRO to handover the land identified for hanger and simple approach lighting of runway 12/30. The obstacles on the approach path of secondary runway is affecting its optimum usage. The meeting dwelled up on obstacles on approach path of runway 12/30 to be removed without affecting the building which are having low infringement, i.e., up to 0.5 metres and it may be re-surveyed. Chairman AAC advised the concerned district administration(s) to initiate immediate measures to clear obstacles on the approach path to enable wide bodied aircraft operations. Further the land to the tune of 60 acres to be acquired for providing connectivity road between New terminal / Cargo terminal to Chennai By-pass was also deliberated.
