New Delhi: The national capital’s Indira Gandhi International Airport will soon have a fixed-base operator (FBO) terminal for private jet and charter flight services by October 2019.
These types of facilities aid in the expansion of general aviation services at busy airports around the world as they provide designated terminal for users of private jets and charter flights. Besides, the company mandated to operate and manage the IGIA — GMR Group’s Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL) — is also conducting feasibility studies for an ‘automated people mover’ (APM) in the airport complex.
The APM project envisages a short distance travel system that could be a driverless monorail which takes passengers from one terminal to another and also connects them to other modes of transportation. Many large international airport complexes have such a facility, which makes it easier for passengers to catch connecting flights from different terminals. (IANS)
