ob opportunity in all sectors but especially for the branch of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering, B.Tech Aeronautical Engineering, and Cabin crew as per as the following new:JEWAR AIRPORT TO BE DEVELOPED IN FOUR PHASES LUCKNOW: Nearly 3, 000 hectares of land would be needed for the development of an international airport at Jewar near Noida and 1, 206 hectares costing around Rs 3, 000 crore would be needed in the first phase, according to Uttar Pradesh government estimates. The Uttar Pradesh cabinet headed by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has gave its go ahead for formalities to be completed and an 'in-principle' nod being sought for the development of the Noida International Greenfield Airport at a meeting here last night. The airport in Gautam Buddha Nagar will be developed in four phases, an official spokesman said. The cabinet gave its go-ahead to complete formalities to apply with the Union government for in-principle approval for development of the Jewar airport, the spokesman said. In all, 3, 000 hectares of land will be needed for the project. Out of this, 1206 hectares at an estimated cost of Rs 3, 000 crore will be required in first phase. The Union government had given site clearance approval for approval for the project on July 5. The Union home ministry has also given a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) for the project on October 5. Jewar in Greater Noida will become the second airport in the National Capital Region (NCR). The government expects the airport to be operational in the next five to six years and would see an investment of about Rs 20, 000 crore. The international airport is billed to cater to 30-50 million passengers per year over the next 10-15 years. The area notified for Noida Airport is 3, 000 hectares and the first phase will be developed in 1, 000 hectares. The civil aviation ministry expects this airport to give a boost to connectivity in the whole of western Uttar Pradesh, which will in turn bolster tourism and economic potential of the region. This airport will not just address the aviation needs of Delhi airport but also cities like Agra, Mathura, Bulandshahr and Meerut. The proposal for an airport in Jewar was made in 2001 when current home minister, Rajnath Singh was the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh. His successor Mayawati also backed the plan and acquired more than 2, 000 acres for the project. The erstwhile UPA government at the Centre then formed a group of ministers to decide on the project as it violated a policy guideline prohibiting building of another airport within 150 km of the existing one in Delhi The plan was revived after Mahesh Sharma, who represents Noida in the Lok Sabha, became the Union minister of state for civil aviation.

The more the airports will get extend the more jobs opportunities come much for B.Tech Aeronautical and Aircraft Maintenance Engineering because more space will be given and more work will there as per as the following news 3 AIRLINES GET TIME TILL OCTOBER TO SHIFT SERVICES TO IGI'S T2 MUMBAI/NEW DELHI: Three domestic airlines have got time till at least October to shift operations to T2 from the existing D1 terminal at the IGI Airport here, a move that is likely to hit DIAL's expansion plans. Currently, three budget carriers-- IndiGo, SpiceJetBSE 1.88 % and GoAir-- operate from D1 terminal at IGI airport. Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), the joint venture firm, which runs the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport, plans to expand the existing terminal to a much bigger facility. It wants these airlines to shift operations to T2, from where international flights used to operate the commissioning of the existing swanky T3. At a recent meeting, the three airlines told the Ministry and DIAL that since there were no extra facilities like additional parking bays or slots created by the private airport operator, it will not be possible for them to relocate even partial operations to T2 till the end of summer schedule, a source said. "Consequently, it was decided that these airlines will continue to carry out their operations from the existing terminal only till at least October, " a source privy to the development told PTI. As per the initial plans, SpiceJet and GoAir were told to relocate their operations to T2 from January 1 this year. However, the two refused to shift on the ground that IndiGo was being allowed to continue from the same terminal, forcing DIAL to defer it. According to sources, in mid-January it wrote to the IndiGo, SpiceJet and GoAir with a new plan, under which the three airlines were told to shift their Mumbai, Kolkata and Bengaluru flights to T2 from February 15, sources said. However, the three airlines failed to meet this deadline as well DIAL wants the airlines to shift operations to T2 as it will help the airport operator carry out expansion plan with much ease. As part of the expansion plan, 10 aerobridges will be constructed and the number of boarding gates will be increased from the present eight to 25. The Economic Times 13/04/2017

The following new is explaining the development of aviation in India, expansion of airports, addition of aircrafts, which will offer much job opportunity in the branch of Aeronautical Engineering, Aircraft Maintenance Engineering and Cabin Crew. IGI PLANS TO SHIFT OUT CHOPPERS TO ROHINI HELIPORT TO EXPAND FLIGHT OPERATION NEW DELHI: As air travel requirement of the national capital region (NCR) grows at a furious pace, the authorities are looking at immediate measures to decongest IGI Airport. In a bid to free up slots for commercial flights, private choppers are likely to be shifted out of the choked airport. Some of this traffic may be transferred to Pawan Hans' recently opened heliport at Rohini. General aviation (GA -private non-schedule or charter flights) may also be barred during some hours. The three-runway airport currently handles up to 50 private aircraft and choppers a day as part of the 1, 200 flights -passenger, cargo, GA and defence. It expects to increase the hourly flight handling capacity from 67 to 72 in the winter schedule that kicks in from October 29. “We will have 80 additional slots at Delhi this winter. On the basis of international slot alloca tion norms, most of these will be utilised to add new foreign and domestic stations. For instance, Polish airline LOT wanted to start the Warsaw route. There are several demands pending. So in terms of adding more flights, we remain quite constrained at IGIA, “ said a source. What makes matters worse is that the hourly flight handling capacity will not grow beyond 72 next summer due to several reasons like constructions of the fourth runway, expansion of Terminal 1 and apron work. As a result, a worried aviation ministry, Delhi International Airport Pvt Ltd (DIAL) and other stakeholders are trying to find some means to free up some slots. As part of that effort, regional flights meant for Delhi may be shifted to the Hindon air base at Ghaziabad. “We are gradually expanding slot capacity at Delhi airport over the next few years.But the winter and summer schedules are quite congested right now. So we are examining a series of alternatives to see if we can decongest Delhi airport by moving some operations to other locations, “ said Union minister of state for aviation Jayant Sinha. Delhi and Mumbai airports together handled almost 10 crores of the total Indian domestic-cum-international traffic of just over 15 crore last year. But both airports are completely choked. While IGIA is going to be expanded over next few years, Mumbai is saturated and is hoping to get the long-delayed Navi Mumbai airport in five-six years. “We keep pleading for slots. Airlines have ordered hundreds of planes but no one knows where to park them. It is one thing to have plans -like Navi Mumbai and Greater Noida airports -but implementing them in time is crucial, “ said a senior airline official.
