jaipur airport update
Passengers waiting for Terminal-1 to start
Start date not revealed yet
Jaipur. The number of passengers at Pink City Jaipur International Airport, which is one of the busiest airports in Rajasthan, is continuously increasing. The entire pressure of increasing passenger load is on Terminal 2. VIP movement is done from T-2 alone. Terminal-2 has also been connected to the State Hangar, where all VIPs have to come and go. With this, it has now been connected with the vehicle gate, from where the movement of guests takes place under special circumstances and from here lakhs of air passengers also come and go. As a result, the crowd has started increasing at Terminal-2 of Jaipur Airport. Domestic and international flights are also operating from the same place. Four years ago, it was decided that Terminal-1 would be built near Terminal-2.
Earlier arrangements were made for Haj pilgrims at this place. That place was known by the name of Haj Terminal. The entire blueprint of Haj Terminal was changed and designed in such a way that international flights can also take off from there. Terminal-1 has been completed three years ago, but it could not be inaugurated till date. Recently, international flights for Haj pilgrimage took off from here. It was said by the officials that regular international flights will fly here after the Haj is over. But as soon as the Haj pilgrimage is over, after that the entire load has shifted to Terminal-2.
Airport administration struggling with staff shortage
Airport Authority of India officials seem to be avoiding saying anything in this regard. But if sources are to be believed, the work is not being started here due to staff shortage. For this, the concerned agencies have been informed several times. An additional contingent of 400 to 500 CISF personnel is required for security here. Apart from this, airport ground handling staff is also needed. All airlines companies will have to hire additional staff to operate which has not been done yet. It is being told that all the preparations have been completed by the Jaipur Airport Authority, but due to shortage of staff, Terminal-1 is not being started.
Five lakh passengers are traveling in a month
At present, the movement of passengers at Jaipur airport is being done from Terminal-2. The passenger load at Terminal 2 is continuously increasing and about 5 lakh passengers are being moved in a month. To reduce the load of T-2, the construction of T-1 was started. Every time a new date is given to start T-1, which has been completed three years ago, but the second part of Aaj Tak airport could not be started.
