Mangaluru: Adani Group begins airport takeover process


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP) 

Mangaluru, Oct 30: The union government had given six airports in the country on lease to Adani Group headed by Gautham Adani. The lease for maintenance of the airport will be for 50 years, and the company feels that the entire process of takeover may take about a year. 

The operation of the airport, maintenance, terminal and other development works will be undertaken by Adani Group during the period of lease. Runway expansion is on its priority list. The company has currently undertaken scrutiny of airport assets, staff functioning, source of income, security system, airlines operating from here and other things. Experts deputed by the company are busy with this task.

 

Some employees are worried about the prospects of losing their jobs, but Adani Group has said that it will give preference to existing employees and interests of the locals would be protected. 

As Adani Group will invest huge amounts towards developing the airport, hike in per passenger charges, monthly rent of commercial stalls, and charges for services being availed by customers may go up along with the parking fee. Charges for the aircrafts touching down and parked in hangars here may also go up, it is said. It is learnt that the group plans to set up 'Adani Airports Ltd' exclusively for managing airports. 

Adani plans to build separate complex malls at the airport here and to work to make it more passenger-friendly. Kishore Alva, president of Adani Group in Karnataka, said that it may take a year for the government to complete all processes and hand over the airport to the company.

    let's give private enterprise achance. All Govt. run establishments are loss making with no accountability. I feel even the defense forces should be partly privatized like transportation.

    I see this in a positive way. All this years we haven't seen any development as far as the runway and the infrastructure is concerned. So far people have paid for the verst services offered by the airport. Now they have to shell a little more for the best services provided by Adani. I don't see any wrong in that.

    All we want is Mangaluru International Airport really to be called international with world class facilities. I hope Adani gives us the best services and add more routes both national and international. Looking forward to the new management.

    I urge all mangaloreans to support this as nothing can be changed now. I hope you people see the positive side of this.

    All we want is Mangaluru to be developed.

    Our local rich business men were only keen in changing the name of the airport, mean time its taken over by a Gujju under their nose.
    Hope runways will be developed airlines like Emirates can operate from western countries as well.

    No smugglers can get golf or illegal substance without the help and knowledge of Internal staffs and Airport employee, 90 % of the smuggled gold are passed thru green channel with the help of Govt and Airline employee , only 10% of the gold is shown to public and media as commercial advertisement.

    If not for Ambanis and Adanis.
    where are the rest of the South Indian business community..all top class business houses?
    what are they doing.?
    arent they capable and competent?
    There are such great businessmen all highly competent like that of:
    Wipro, Infosys, HCL, Lulu: NMC, etc.
    why not give them a good chance..

    Bring on board in CORE Sectors all top-class young dynamic entrepreneurs from across India there are in millions
    Give them a chance in all core industries...
    no need the CORE EConomy to be controlled or Dominated by only few cos like that of the
    AMBAINIS and the ADANIS?
    We have 1.3 billion of us.
    what is the justification?
    They all need Govt support..open support.
    but all prerequisites be met.
    call for Closed BIDS /Tenders.
    allot to the best co..most qualified and competent.
    Every time we see and read-only AMBANIS..RELIANCE.ADANIS.
    where are we?
    what is going on/.' why this MONOPOLY.
    Who is controlling, dominating whose Life?
    Look JIO.
    for one year he will give you free service..
    wipe one and all from the market then.. spread their wings and hood like the Chinese do.
    why?
    wake up ..wake up
    don't sleep
    Too much JUGAAD going on
    be aware of your rights..it will be late to repent later.
    India is blessed with great businessmen.give them chance..
    but with correct ethics,
    Laws, regulations. .
    we are all equal.

    Only existing belt is cramped...one meter space to the wall. You can collect luggage from one side only with minimum comfort. One scanner for arriving passengers...at times takes an hour if more than one flight lands in the morning hours for sleepless passengers!
