Mangalore, April 23: The foundation stone laying ceremony for the much awaited air traffic control tower cum technical block at Mangalore Airport was held on Sunday.

The establishment of new facility is aimed at enhancing the safety and security of Mangalore Airport and also bringing different air control units under one roof.

Speaking after laying foundation stone, Mangalore Airport Director M R Vasudeva Rao said the project, costing Rs 18.3 crore, will be completed within 13 months.

“It will house air traffic control, control tower, radar unit and communication unit at one place. The three floors plus basement structure will come up behind the fire station and will allow a bird's eye view of the entire airport as in other airports like Chennai and Kolkata”, he said.

Of the Rs 18.8 crore, the civil component is Rs 7 crore and the rest is for equipment, he added.

The airport presently handles 24 flights per day.

Whatever you are doing,It will be of no use,Untill you allow private airlines to operate to and from mangalore to International Destinations.People of Mangalore and sorrounding are fed up with Airindia express,(With their cost and service being a budget flight.What ever you will do for airport people will think that you are doing for your own personel gain and not for passengers. Please sir allow other aielines to operate atleast from gulf.
