Update for one of the most spectacular airportsmore
The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has appointed ILF to carry out a feasibility study for the development and upgradation of Agatti Airport.
This airport is the gateway to the Lakshadweep islands and is the only airport off the West Coast of India. The runway is to undergo a change in design and is to be extended to enable Airbus A320 operation. The terminal building, the apron, the runway end safety area (RESA) system and the taxiway are also to be upgraded for passenger flights. The upgradation of this airport is a challenge due to its special location, the required reclamation of land and the non-availability of local construction materials and labor.
Along with the feasibility study, ILF is also performing the surveying works and environmental studies for this project in which environment protection – e.g. marine and wildlife activities such as coral reef rehabilitation – will play a key role.
