Trichy airport will overtake Ahmedabad airport in international pax. Traffic by this year but no developments from govt. side.


The Indian civil aviation minister's push for greater domestic regional air connectivity in India has highlighted another, more complex, issue: that of the underdeveloped and under-served international airports in the country.

On October 4, 2012 the union cabinet declared airports at Lucknow, Coimbatore, Trichy, Mangalore and Varanasi as international. Close to two years hence, the international air traffic at the airports combined, account for slightly more than 4% of total passenger traffic and 0.48% of the total international freight in the country. They are served by 3-4 airlines out of more than 50 that fly to India.

Two of these airports--Mangalore and Trichy cannot accomodate wide-bodied planes, three of them don't have a separate terminal for international passengers, most have very basic air traffic control systems and none of them have amenities like pre-paid taxis, foreign exchange outlets, wi-fi connectivity or even mobile charging points.

"While signing bilateral agreements, the Indian government has the provision to allocate slots at specific airports to international airports. None of them are asked to fly to these smaller airports. What's the point of giving them the international status then?" rues Habeeb Ubaidullah, an independent researcher and consultant.

As a result Trichy has 4 foreign carriers flying to it, Coimbatore has 2, Lucknow and Varanasi have 3 each while Mangalore has none. None of the gulf carriers are allowed into Trichy.

Trichy airport has in the past few years, become the fastest growing international airport in the country. International passenger traffic in this southern town grew 382% to 773,423 between 2006-07 and 2012-13, jumping three notches more than bigger airports such as Goa, Lucknow and Amritsar, according to government statistics. This year, Trichy airport is expected to overtake even Ahmedabad to become the tenth biggest international airport in India.

But the airports are woefully inadequate. The airport's new passenger terminal built at a cost of Rs 80 crore spreads across 126,000 square feet. In comparison, the new terminal at Mumbai's airport which is said to be dealing with a space problem, spans 4.4 million square feet.

Trichy also has the shortest runway among the top fifteen airports in the country spreading 8,136 feet. Delhi has a 13,534 feet runway while Amritsar has a runway length of 12,001 feet.among the top 15 airports in the country spreading 8,136 feet. Delhi has a 13,534 feet runway while Amritsar has a runway length of 12,001 feet.

Trichy, Coimbatore and Mangalore airports for instance have one terminal for handling domestic and international passengers and 10-15 check-in counters which creates major congestion and confusion. None of these airports integrated parking facilties, cloak rooms, missed baggage handling services, child care and parenting rooms, mobile charging points or laptop recharge points.

Electronic data interchange is an essential facility for cargo export. Because of this one facility the exporters get their subsidiary from the government. Except Coimbatore, none of the airports provide such facilitites," said Ubaidullah. Not surprisingly, the neglect at these airports has made them financially unviable. The state-run Airports Authority of India is incurring losses on 93 of these airports with Lucknow and Varanasi being making some of the highest losses.

Survey to improve airport security

40 more cameras to be installed at various places in the airport

With the Tiruchi International Airport already under a surveillance cameras-based monitoring mechanism, a detailed review of the existing arrangement has been carried out to ascertain areas that are not properly covered. A committee comprising senior officials recently conducted a survey at the airport guarded round-the-clock by personnel of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) augmented by closed circuit television units (CCTV) installed at vantage points.

Consequent to the survey, airport authorities have proposed to set up additional cameras to cover more areas on the airport premises to enhance security and surveillance.

A proposal for over 40 cameras has been forwarded to the Airports Authority of India (AAI) regional headquarters. The cameras would be installed at various places inside the spacious terminal building and outside.

The review comes at a time when the airport has been witnessing a spurt in passenger traffic. Nearly 88 per cent of these passengers are overseas travellers, and the remaining 12 per cent domestic. Barring Jet Airways which operates flights to and from Chennai, the others are international airliners with operations to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Colombo, and Dubai.

A few days ago, vital areas at the old terminal building were brought under surveillance cameras, including navigational aids room and Air Traffic Services.

Movements at these areas are being closely monitored from a separate room networked with the cameras, the sources said. Additionally, bullet proof cabins have been procured for security staff and installed at strategic locations on the airport premises.

Tiruchi to have Airport Operations Control Centre

Image

An automated Airport Operations Control Centre (AOCC) will soon be put in place at the Tiruchi international airport by bringing together important stakeholders for advanced planning and optimum utilisation of available resources to benefit travellers.

Airlines, ground handlers, customs, immigration, and security agencies would be brought under a common platform under the AOCC which aims at providing hassle-free service to passengers arriving at Tiruchi from various overseas and domestic destinations.

Equipment required for the AOCC has been acquired and training is under way for a team of Tiruchi airport staff prior to commissioning the centre.

Tiruchi is one of the 10 airports in the country where the AOCC is to be set up by the Airports Authority of India.

The centre would be connected to the Air Traffic Services automation system at the airport from where it would collect real time data of flights and their estimated time of arrival at the Tiruchi airport and update them in the FIDS (Flight Information Display System).

The AOCC would allot the bay number on which the aircraft should arrive upon landing and the same would be conveyed to respective airlines and ground handling agencies in advance. In addition to this, it would allot the check-in counters and conveyor belt number for collection of baggage by passengers upon arrival. Passengers would be provided with the information even while they were on board the aircraft by the respective airlines before landing.

The real time data obtained by the AOCC would enable in advanced planning through collaborative decision making and optimum utilisation of available resources in the terminal building and in the apron to help passengers as well as the stakeholders at the airport. It would help the customs and immigration authorities to plan and deploy manpower accordingly.

The waiting time in queue for the passengers would be reduced through this system, Airport Director B.C. H. Negi said.

Chennai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Pune, Thiruvananthapuram, Kozhikode, Jaipur, Mangalore, and Guwahati are the other airports where the AOCC would be in place.

The AOCC at Chennai airport had been commissioned. The AOCC of the 10 airports would be networked for exchange of information, airport officials said. Barring the Jet Airways, the rest are international airlines operating flights to and from Tiruchi to Colombo, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Dubai.

தொழில் நுட்ப பூங்கா

புதுப்பிக்கப்பட்ட திருச்சி விமான நிலைய முனையத்தின் மூலம் தற்போது 400 பயணிகளை தான் கையாள முடிகிறது. இது விரைவில் 800 பயணிகளை கையாளும் வகையில் விரிவுபடுத்தப்படும். 3-வது ஏரோபிரிட்ஜ் விரைவில் அமைக்கப்படும். பயணிகளின் வசதிக்காக விமான நிலைய வளாகத்தில் விரைவில் சிற்றுண்டி அங்காடி அமைக்கப்பட உள்ளது. விமான நிலையத்தின் தட்ப வெப்ப நிலையை விமானி தெரிந்து கொள்வதற்காக தானியங்கி தொழில் நுட்ப பூங்காவும் அமைக்கப்பட உள்ளது. மேலும் திருச்சி விமான நிலைய வளாகத்தின் முன்பகுதியில் தனியார் பங்களிப்புடன் நவீன பூங்கா அமைக்கப்பட உள்ளது.
