ACI Membership To Mangalore International Airport

Mangalore International airport has recently been bestowed the membership to the Airport Council International(ACI). Additionally, Sardar Vallabhai Patel International Airport of Ahmedabad as well as Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport located in Lucknow have been given this status of being a part of the ACI recently. Airports located in New Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru are also ACI members from before.

This change has been fueled by the central government’s project of privatisation. Adani Group has taken over the management of Mangalore International Airport since October, 30, 2020 under this project. Officially, the airport was handed over to the Adani group the following day.

Adani Group as well as the Airport Authority of India will work alongside each other for a year. In the joint operation period, the former will handle matters related to money exchange, commercial activities in the airport as well as profit and loss, while the latter will be the director of the whole system and deal with arrivals and departures of flights. 

When the joint operation period terminates, the Airport Authority of India will continue to manage arrivals and departures of flights. This, in turn, intends that the Communication and Navigation Centre along with the Air Traffic Control (ATC) will be under the control of the Airport authority. Adani group will then take care of security, airline staff, terminal building, runway, electrical and civil works

Airport Council International or ACI is representative of the airport authority of the entire world. It is responsible, among many other functions, of recommending practices, developing standards as well as in making policies that will be implemented in airports. It also plays a significant part in ensuring the citizens a safe transport in terms of air travel. Thus, Mangalore International airport getting the honour of representing itself as a member of the ACI is a proud moment indeed.
