Ahmedabad Airport Enhances Capacity with New Stands and Upgrades

Ahmedabad's Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport in Gujarat has undergone significant enhancements recently. The latest upgrade includes the addition of five new parking stands at Terminal 2, boosting flight operations and aircraft parking capacity.

This expansion responds to the growing demand for air travel in Ahmedabad, increasing the airport's parking stands from 13 to 18, accommodating commonly used domestic and some international airline aircraft.

The new stands create opportunities for airlines to expand their connections to Ahmedabad. Terminal 2's expansion also involves the installation of four new aerobridges, bringing the total to eight. Additionally, the implementation of the Multiple Aircraft Ramp System (MARS) on four existing aerobridges optimizes stand usage.

With these advancements, Terminal 2 can now accommodate 18 Boeing 737/Airbus A320 aircraft commonly used by domestic and some international carriers, along with five wide-body aircraft like Boeing 777/787 or Airbus A359, and cargo aircraft like the AN 124, B744, and Beluga mainly operated by international airlines.

Terminal 2 is also prepared to handle Saudi Airlines' B747-400 aircraft, particularly for Hajj Operations.

The increased capacity not only enhances passenger traffic but also improves operational efficiency to accommodate larger aircraft in the future. This development opens doors for international carriers to consider Ahmedabad for frequent technical halts alongside regular passenger flights.

Furthermore, Ahmedabad has welcomed a new twice-weekly direct cargo flight operated by Ethiopian Airlines, connecting the city to Addis Ababa.

Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport remains committed to ongoing development and upgrades, aiming to establish itself as a leading aviation hub for western India. (ANI)
