The main agenda of the meeting was to discuss the progress and developments at the airport, as well as any issues and challenges faced by the various stakeholders. The airport operator presented a report on the performance of the airport in the past year, highlighting the increase in passenger traffic and cargo movement.
Key Agenda of AAC Meeting:
One of the key issues discussed at the meeting was the expansion of the airport to cater to the growing demand for air travel. The Airport Director presented a proposal to MP Belagavi for the construction of a new terminal and the expansion of the runway. The AAC members discussed the feasibility and cost of the expansion project and provided their inputs and suggestions.
Land Acquisition for Runway Expansion:
During the expansion, the old cemetery was acquired. Six acres of land have been left elsewhere for a crematorium. This new site is also adjacent to the defense wall of the airport. Now, this new cemetery is also coming under the ambit of land acquisition. This place has not yet been transferred to Gram Panchayat. The Officials also gave this information to MP Belagavi Smt Angadi.
Therefore, it is clear that the cemetery site will also go into land acquisition. If Sambra airport is to be given international status, it is necessary to extend the runway further. At present, there is 2300m of runway length and to get international standards another 900 meters i.e. 3200 meters of runway has to be made.
If more land is acquired in the area of the airport, houses will also have to be acquired. So citizens will have to face land acquisition once again.
Another important topic discussed at the meeting was the safety and security of the airport. The aviation regulatory bodies presented a report on the measures taken to ensure the safety of passengers and the smooth functioning of the airport. The AAC members appreciated the efforts taken by the regulatory bodies and suggested ways to further improve the safety and security protocols at the airport.
MP Belgaum Visiting Village Road for Diversion:
MP Belagavi Mangal Angadi recently visited the main gate of Belagavi Airport in order to inspect plans to divert a village road in order to prevent traffic collisions with incoming passengers. The decision to divert the road was made due to safety concerns and to ensure that passengers arriving at the airport are able to do so smoothly and without any disruptions.
During her visit, MP Angadi spoke with local officials and discussed the potential impacts of the road diversion on the village and surrounding areas. She also took the opportunity to listen to the concerns and suggestions of the community and assured them that their feedback would be taken into consideration as the plans for the road diversion are finalized.
Demand for New Parking Slots at Belagavi Airport:
The airlines also shared their feedback on the services and facilities provided at the airport. They raised concerns about the availability of parking slots for their planes, and the need for better connectivity to the city. The Airport Director assured the airlines that these issues would be addressed in the upcoming expansion project.
The local government representatives highlighted the importance of the airport for the economic development of the region. They shared their plans to improve the infrastructure around the airport and suggested ways to enhance the airport’s contribution to the region.
