Pune greenfield could alleviate Mumbai capacity crunch

17 November 2017

The Chambers of Commerce in Pune is urging private companies to participate in plans to build a new greenfield airport, after the Indian military rejected a proposed Chhatrapati Sambhaji Raje International Airport on a 2,400 ha site in Purandar, some 40 km away from the city.

A letter from the Chambers of Commerce, seen by Jane’s , noted that private firms “have no reliance on government funding”, adding that an “absence of major airport infrastructure could impede industrial growth of the rich agricultural and industrial region”.

Purandar was supported by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) and the Maharashtra Airport Development Corporation (MADC) – but Indian defence agencies opposed it because the site was within 25 km of an active airbase.
