Aircraft Orders Show Aviation Sector Set To Take Off, Says PM Modi

Narendra Modi lays foundation stone for Navi Mumbai International Airport

Apart from delivering the inaugural address at the global summit, the PM will lay the foundation stone of Navi Mumbai International Airport and inaugurate Wadhwani Institute for Artificial Intelligence at the University of Mumbai.

Fadnavis said the prime minister was the reason behind the possibility of the Navi Mumbai International Airport as the state government had received permissions because of the central government and Modi's proactive approach. "Our government brought an aviation policy that is transforming the sector", he said. "Aviation sector is moving ahead", he further said.

Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani said Mumbai is both his "janmabhoomi" (birthplace) and his own "karmabhoomi" (are of action) where the start-up company was established by his father, the late visionary Dhirubhai Ambani with a seed capital of Rs 1,000 and one employee.

"The issue of Navi Mumbai airport has been pending for years". Local Sena leader and former Thane Mayor Sanajy More said that though his party welcomed the airport project, the BJP was excluding Sena leaders from the function for the sake of politics. While the first phase will add a capacity of 24 lakh containers per year, the capacity will increase to 100 lakh containers per year once the second phase is completed by 2022.

Presently, there are a total of around 450 aircraft operating in the country, but that will be more than tripled with over 900 new aircraft to be deployed over the next few years in the country, Modi said.

Sanil Banerjee's, grandfather had bought a flat in Navi Mumbai some 30 years back in anticipation of the new airport, but he is no more, but it was still a historic occasion that Sanil attended the ground breaking ceremony yesterday.

He hailed the fact that there has been a tremendous growth in India's aviation sector.

The PM also inaugurated the country's largest container terminal at Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust, built at a cost of Rs 4,719 crore.

The first phase of the project with a minimum passenger handling capacity of about ten million is likely to become operational by December 2019.

Union Minister of Water Resources, Road, Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari on Sunday said his ministry will connect Navi Mumbai International airport with Mumbai city through waterways. Spread over 1,160 hectares of land, one of the biggest Greenfield airport will have two parallel runways.
