Ahmedabad airport runway repair works to start in April

Recarpeting and repair works on the 3.5 km runway of the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, will commence from April 16, 2016, at an estimated cost of Rs 270 million. Currently, recarpeting work for a small portion of the runway is being undertaken. The full recarpeting, overdue for two years, is likely to be completed by March 2017. This will result in temporary suspension and rescheduling of flights by airlines such as IndiGo, Jet Airways and SpiceJet. Runway repair work is also being undertaken at Amritsar, where work is expected to be completed within 10 months; Indore (six months); and Trivandrum (three months) from the start of work.
