AAI expects Jaipur, Ahmedabad airport bid papers by November
Airports Authority of India (AAI) plans to come out with documents for seeking bids from private players for operating and managing terminals at Jaipur and Ahmedabad aerodromes by November, months after rejecting a proposal in this regard from Singapore's Changi Airport. Seeking to revive the long pending plans to hand over the terminals of the two airports to private players, AAI Chairman Guruprasad Mohapatra on Tuesday said the proposal is to go for public private partnership. "We have to go to the Finance ministry since these are the PPP projects. We are working this out and hope the proposal goes to the Finance Ministry by this month end," he said here. Mohapatra said that AAI expects to float the bid documents, which would also be open for foreign entities, by November.
