Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Nov 9: The union government has decided to develop six more airports in the country under Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model. One of the airports chosen for this experiment happens to be the international airport here.

Under PPP, private concerns will take over the airports on contract basis. This decision was taken at a meeting held on Thursday November 8 at New Delhi, which was presided over by the Prime Minister.

Already airports at Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Mumbai and New Delhi have been upgraded with world class facilities under PPP. This method has also proved beneficial for Airports Authority of India.

The other airports proposed to be developed under PPP model are Jaipur, Ahmadabad, Lucknow, Guwahati and Thiruvananthapuram.
