Airport transfer: Prague Airport transfer has been a big success story in the country, according to airport officials.
The city’s transfer to Pragar airport has been successful for the past two weeks, officials said, after receiving the first plane from Dubai.
Airports in Pune and Ahmedabad have also been able to transfer planes, said Anand Khaitan, deputy commissioner of Pragar Airport.
“We are hopeful that these airports can follow this model and transfer planes to the airports of their choice,” Khaiton told IndiaSpend.
“This is the first time in a long time we have seen such an operation.”
Pragar International Airport’s transfer has also been successful in the past, said Khaite.
“The transfer from Pune to Pragar is a first for us.
We have been working for years to achieve this,” he said.
Pragarian airports have received over 200,000 international flights per day, of which more than 20,000 are domestic, according the airport.
In addition, international flights have been booked at airport terminals to facilitate travel to destinations in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
According to the airport, Pragaria has received over 1,500 international flights since September this year, of whom over 70 percent have been domestic.
Pragar has been witnessing rapid growth as the country continues to face major economic, security and environmental challenges, according a report published by the airport in 2017.
According the report, “the total population of Pragari is estimated to be about 15 million people.”
The country’s growth is also in part due to the introduction of the Aadhaar card, a new universal-use biometric ID card.
“As per data released by the government, the total population has grown from 14.4 million in 2017 to 22.8 million in 2019,” Pragary Airport said.
However, according with the report’s numbers, Pragar is the fastest growing airport in India, with the total number of arrivals growing from 4.4 lakh in 2017, to 9.5 lakh in 2019.
