E-mail Print PDF


Mangalore, December 13: The Directorate General of Civil Aviation has renewed the licence of Mangalore airport for a period of two-years up to December 15, 2013.

The licence of Mangalore airport had expired on June 15, 2010 just a few days after the Air India IX 812 crash which claimed at least 158 persons on board.

The Airports Authority of India is required to submit periodic compliance reports to the DGCA based on routine inspections carried out by the authority in wake of renewal of the license.

AAI is also required to obtain DGCAs permission for any new development or specific concessions required.

It can be mentioned that in the last week of September, Karnataka High Court had directed the Assistant Solicitor General of India (ASGI) to submit details related to the status of renewal of licence of Mangalore Airport.

Expressing dissatisfaction over the pending renewal of licence of the Airport, the Court had directed ASGI Kalyan Basavaraj to seek instructions from the DGCA regarding the status of the renewal application by AAI.
