Is there any more news about the completion date for the new airport terminal? The last I heard was that a date of October was given, but then it was written elsewhere that a years delay could occur.
 
Are there any more airlines planning to fly to Amritsar ? we desperately need a direct flight from London.

Amritsar airport can now handle exports  
Posted by: editor on Wednesday, June 22, 2005 - 07:12 AM GMT+5:30
     
  News <TBODY> AMRITSAR: Exporters and importers of Punjab have got an opportunity to trade via Raja Sansi Airport at Amritsar because the airport has earned the status of a “customs notified” one.  
   
“Finance Minister P Chidambaram, during our recent meeting, told me Raja Sansi Airport had been declared ‘customs notified’ and exporters and importers can use the cargo facility at the airport,” MP Rana Gurjit Singh said yesterday.  
   
He said the finance ministry had amended 16 customs notifications issued under various export promotion schemes to permit imports and exports through the airport.  
   
“I told Chidambaram the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) had not yet given approval for custodianship to the Airports Authority of India Cargo complex, due to which shippers from Punjab still prefer Indira Gandhi Airport, Delhi, in view of quicker customs certifications and claiming duty draw entitlements,” Singh said.  
   
He said he had written a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan singh to take steps to set up a special economic zone in Amritsar, as announced by him, to benefit exports from the north.  
   
Meanwhile, exporters have welcomed the customs notified status for Raja Sansi airport and said this would be beneficial for them.  
   
Sharad Aggarwal, All India Chairman of Hand Tools Panel of Engineering Export Promotion Council (EEPC), said this would give a boost to exports from Punjab. “It will save the cost of sending goods to Delhi and least a day,” he said.  
   
“This will prove beneficial in meeting deadlines for overseas promotion and also it will lead to the development of Amritsar as an important hub for the movement of export and import cargo,” he said, adding that exporters would now be able to get all export incentives like duty drawback, duty entitlement pass book, advance licensing, export promotion capital goods, etc. for export shipments through the airport.  
   
The Hand Tools Exporters Forum and the Jalandhar Focal Point Association thanked Rana Gurjit Singh for his initiative.

Amritsar airport terminal building to become operational by August
Ashok Sethi and Sanjay Bumbroo
Tribune News Service
 
Amritsar, July 17
The much-delayed work on Amritsar's Rajasansi International Airport terminal building, which had remained stalled for a considerable period of time and generated some controversy due to it's redesigning , has finally been given a go-ahead by the Ministry of Civil Aviation. It is likely to become operational next month.  
 
The Chairman of the National Minorities Commission and member of the Parliamentary Panel on Civil Aviation, Mr Tarlochan Singh, told The Tribune on phone from New Delhi that the Minister of Civil Aviation, Mr Praful Patel, had assured the panel that the arrival block of the terminal building phase I was already under construction. It was planned to be completed and put into operation by the end of this month. The equipment for the arrival block had already arrived.  
 
He added that work was continuing simultaneously on the departure area of the terminal building and was likely to be completed by October 2005. The minister promised that the entire terminal building would be ready by November this year. Plans were also underway to expand the terminal building in view of the manifold increase in the passenger traffic at the Amritsar International Airport.
 
The Director Airport, Mr V.S Mulekar, too said the ministry had given the go-ahead and the entire conveyor belt equipment and other amenities were being added on war footing to complete the project and to commence the operation by next month.
 
Mr Tarlochan Singh said during the Parliamentary meeting of the Ministry of Civil Aviation held on July 11 he had strongly favoured that the cargo potential of Punjab should be fully exploited to benefit the local industry and agriculture. He had suggested that Air-India and Indian Airlines should commence cargo flights from the Amritsar airport. Air-India had already offered 15 tonnes of cargo payloads on its flights to Birmingham and Canada for the benefit of exporters based in Punjab.
 
A Rajya Sabha Member, Mr Tarlochan Singh, lauded the ministry for starting Air-India flight from Amritsar and added that the Air-India Express, a low-cost airline, was keen on starting its operations from Amritsar very soon. He added that the Air- India Express was already operating from three cities in Kerala and had become popular.
 
The Airport Authority of India, despite having been under fire for not providing passenger amenities, had not ordered 500 additional trolleys at the airport. However, it was expected that trolleys would be added within the next two months.
 
Mr Tarlochan Singh pointed out that the present air-conditioning in both arrival and departure lounge, including security areas, would be further augmented and the process was likely to be completed by the end of August. He added that at present the Amritsar airport was charging only domestic rates from the various airlines, and no international airport charges were being made.
 
At present more than 58 flights are operating during the week taking passengers to various destinations around the globe. More than two and half lakh passengers use the airport around the year and by the end of 2010 the figure is going to jump at least five lakh.

The Airline Industry had been showing never-before seen interest in the City and Region of Chandigarh. The country 's first low-cost airline, Air Deccan, recently announced two more flights to Chandigarh and to Amritsar from Delhi, putting Ludhiana back on the Air Map.
 
This announcement came when Jet Airways unveiled plans to introduce Boeings to connect the city with Mumbai and Bangalore.  
 
Air Deccan Managing Director Capt. Gopinath was here in the city in connection with announcing of  tie-up arrangements with Reliance Web World for booking, cancellation and re-schduling of tickets through the country. He said that his company had been interested to expand their operations in the North and link cities like Ludhiana.
 
Previous to this both Indian Airline and Jet Airways started flights from Delhi to Ludhiana but later discontinued operations. He said that their company had been very much satisfied with the 70% occupancy being maintained by the Chandigarh-Delhi flight and encouraged the introduction of another flight on the same route in the coming months.  
 
He further said that in the beginning of this month, Chandigarh flights would be extended to Jammu, to operate three times in a week. He said that his company had already ordered 60 brand new aircraft, which would be delivered within a period of 5 years.
