In a big move aimed at boosting the airport infrastructure, the Union Cabinet on Thursday approved a proposal to manage six airports under public private partnership (PPP) mode.
The six airports are- Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Lucknow, Guwahati, Thiruvananthapuram and Mangaluru.
According to an official tweet, the operation, management and development of all these aerodromes, owned by the Airports Authority of India (AAI), would be done under PPP.
Any issue that is beyond the scope of PPPAC would be dealt with by an empowered group of secretaries, the tweet said.
The group would be headed by NITI Aayog CEO. Secretaries of Civil Aviation Ministry, Department of Economic Affairs and Department of Expenditure would be part of the group.
