The aviation secretary made a statement at the EU-India Aviation Summit, which got underway here on Thursday.

“The fourth Runway is expected to lessen the strain caused by an anticipated increase in flight operations. Furthermore, officials stated that the waiting time for flights to land and take off would be significantly reduced thanks to the new Runway.
To increase the airport’s capacity from 66 million passengers per year to 100 million, DIAL (Delhi International Airport Limited), a joint venture majority-owned by the GMR Group, announced 2019 an investment of Rs 9,800 crore. Subsequently, this money will be used to upgrade the current Terminal 1, build a fourth runway, and for other development work.
The official said that the coronavirus hurt the runway construction. The EU-India Aviation Summit will be centred on the relationships between the EU and India’s air transport sectors. Subsequently, the potential and difficulties both countries face, including the post-Covid air traffic recovery, increased sustainability, maintaining safety, and the development of unmanned aircraft systems.
