The under-construction new terminal building of the Pune airport will be ready by January next year.
The new proposed date of completion is a delay of almost five months from the earlier proposed deadline of August 2022.
Without mentioning reasons for the delay, an airport official shared on condition of anonymity, “More than 68% of the work for this structure has been completed. We should see the new terminal building becoming operational by January of next year. ”
However, sources also said that once the building gets ready, it would need the necessary permissions and approvals of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and other aviation bosses like the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security. “The work on the Rs.415 crore project is on in full swing at present. With regards to the multi-level parking project, it should be ready for initial operations by April 2022, even as the work on the skywalk connecting the parking to the exit terminal building is on. It should take another month or so for the entire project worth Rs.120 crore to be completed,” the official said.
