The Airports Authority of India has won Dainik Bhaskar's ‘India Pride Awards—2016-17’ for ‘Excellence in Infrastructure Development’ in the category of Public Sector Undertaking - Central.
The award was given to AAI Chairman Guruprasad Mohapatra by Union Minister of Communications Manoj Sinha at a ceremony in New Delhi. Mohapatra said, “(The) Airports Authority of India has the mandate of building new airports heading on to the capacity of existing airports and running airports in efficient manner. So, we have lot of challenges like the regional connectivity scheme. We first have to keep 43-odd airports ready for flying by the dates indicated by the respective bidders.”
As the number of air passengers is growing every year, AAI is building infrastructure at all airports and using advanced technology to ensure best services to its customers.
