The airport at Sindhudurg, which is going to be Maharashtra’s 14th airport, is expected to be get ready by August this year.
The greenfield airport is being constructed at Parule Chipi in the Sindhudurg district by IRB Sindhudurg Airport on a design-build-finance-operate-transfer basis for the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation.
With a 2,500-metre long runway, the airport will have a capacity to handle 200 departing and 200 arriving passengers during peak hours.
During a review meeting of the under-construction airports at Sindhudurg and Ratnagiri, civil aviation minister Suresh Prabhu said that he will personally talk to chief minister Devendra Fadnavis to resolve and issues were hampering the work at Ratnagiri airport.
According to an official release, eighty per cent work on construction of passenger terminal building, ATC tower and technical building has been completed at Sindhudurg and the remaining work will be finished in a month’s time.
