India inaugurated its 1st privet jet terminal at Delhi’s international airport on Thursday, September 17, 2020. The terminal can cater up to 150 privet jet operations per day and can provide 24×7 personal concierge services.
The first General Aviation Terminal facility at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport was inaugurated by Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri.
Private jets flight operations are classified under the “general aviation” category.
“Happy to inaugurate a General Aviation Terminal at @DelhiAirport today. Today we have more than 100 general aviation aircraft & more than 300 non-scheduled operators registered with DGCA. We see this figure growing further in coming days”, tweeted Aviation Minister Mr. Hardeep Singh Puri.
“A general aviation terminal was the need of the hour at Delhi Airport, even in these times. This new worldclass terminal will help ease passenger movement, fulfill needs of general aviation users & will contribute to the growth of civil aviation sector in the country”, he further added.
This exclusive private jets terminal has 57 parking bays and can handle over 50 passengers every hour, informed Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL).
“This terminal looks good. People like me use the other terminals (earmarked for commercial passenger flights) but those who use this terminal, I am sure their feedback – when they start using it – will also be very positive,” Puri said.
“I am sure this (terminal) will be a small but significant boost to general aviation,” Puri added.
“The terminal has been designed in accordance with the security and precautionary measures implemented in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. This new facility offers exclusive parking in the city and easy access to the city”, reported DIAL.
