Dabolim Airport Controversy Resolved

The controversy over landing at Dabolim airport appears to have been resolved with most of the commercial airlines agreeing to change the timings of their flights to avoid he restricted hours of the afternoon.The decision came after the Director General for Civil Aviation served notices on four airlines for resorting to “blind landings” at the Dabolim airport during the curfew hours. Operations at Dabolim have been restricted due to maintenance work on the only runway.

During the restricted hours of 3 pm to 5:30 pm, nearly 17 flights used to land at Dabolim every day and airlines operators have now agreed to re-schedule these landings.
However, the airlines operators suggested that the maintenance work could be taken up from 6:30 pm to 8 pm when there is no commercial traffic at the airport.
