|The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today gave its approval for swapping of Save Our Soul (SOS) village land measuring 2397 sqm. with Airport Authority of India’s (AAI's) equivalent airport land measuring 2397 sqm. This will facilitate construction of hangars at the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport (LGBI), Guwahati. The Secretary General, SOS village has already given his consent in writing for the swapping of the village land with AAI land. |
The construction of the hangar on the swapped land will facilitate the development of the LGBI Airport. This decision will also help in greater social inclusion of the North Eastern Region. The construction of three hangars to park increased number of aircraft will facilitate increase in scheduled/non-scheduled operators to meet growing traffic demand.
To meet the requirement of various scheduled/non-scheduled operators for housing of aircraft, work for construction of three hangars at LGBI Airport, Guwahati has been awarded. Airport land at the proposed location where hangars are being constructed is not a regular shaped plot and is having a kink. The adjoining land falling in the kink portion belongs to SOS village having an area of 2397 sqm. Beyond the SOS village is AAI land, which incidentally has an equivalent area.
