The Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) in Delhi has been ranked second in the world and Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport third in the 25-40 million passengers per annum (MPPA) category in the Airport Service Quality (ASQ) awards given by the Airports Council International (ACI) for 2011.

Seoul's Incheon airport has topped the category, while Kuala Lumpur and Shenzhen airports were ranked fourth and fifth. The Delhi airport had been placed fourth in 2010.

In the 5-15 million passenger category, Hyderabad airport was placed third, behind Nagoya and Cancun. Hainan Meilan and Wuhan airports were in the fourth and fifth spots in this category.

IGIA has moved up from an ASQ score of 3.02 in 2007 and a rank outside the top 100 to a score of 4.72 and 6th rank across all categories in 2011.

The airport now boasts of an annual passenger capacity of over 60 million, including the state of the art Terminal-3 (T3) which can handle 34 million passengers.

A press release from Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) said 35 million passengers passed through IGIA in 2011,. including 10 million international passengers (both records in Indian aviation). The airport also handled over 600,000 tonnes of cargo and over 300,000 aircraft movements in 2011 CY.

ACI is the only global trade representative of airports. The 580 members operate 1650 airports in 179 countries and territories. It is a non-profit organisation whose prime purpose is to represent the interests of airports and to promote professional excellence in airport management and operations.

The annual ASQ awards recognize and reward the best airports in the world according to ACI's ASQ passenger satisfaction survey. Since its creation in 2006, the ASQ Survey has become the world's leading airport passenger satisfaction benchmark with over 200 airports participating.

The ASQ Awards are the only global airport rankings to be based on a measure of the passengers' satisfaction taken while the passenger is still at the gate. In 2011, over 350,000 passengers were interviewed prior to boarding their flight and asked to rate their satisfaction with the airport that day. To be eligible for the annual ASQ awards, an airport must have participated in the ASQ Survey every month of the year.

Incheon airport was chosen the Best Airport Worldwide for the seventh consecutive year in the awards announced today.

Singapore Changi Airport, Beijing Capital International Airport, Hong Kong International Airport, and Nagoya Ch?bu Centrair International Airport earned the second, third, fourth and fifth spots, respectively --- all in Asia.

In Best Airport by Size, top honours went to Guayaquil (2-5m), Nagoya (5-15m), Seoul Gimpo (15-25m), Seoul Incheon (25-40m), and Singapore (over 40m).

In Best Airport by Region, Cancun, Cape Town, Dubai, Malta, Ottawa, and Seoul Incheon, came out on top. The ASQ Awards also recognized Best Airport by Region with Fewer than 2 Million Passengers: Keflavik, Mazatlan, Quebec City, and Upington.

Best Improvement went to Chongqing, Dubai, East London, Guayaquil, Montreal, and Palma de Mallorca.

I was certainly not under the impression that Mumbai was efficient. Have you seen the lines to get in outside it? Also, the immigration lines, the time they take to deliver baggage and the time that it takes for private cars to arrive are all indicators that the efficiency is not all that good.

Sukhoi’ set to make maiden entry in city
TNN | Feb 17, 2012, 04.32AM IST
HYDERABAD: If all goes well, the 'Sukhoi Superjet 100' could well be, for the first time ever, sharing airspace with the 'Dreamliner' (a midsized, wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner developed by Boeing Commercial Airplanes) at the third edition of the India Aviation Show-2012, slated to kick-start in the city next month. According to key officials of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI), co-organisers of the show along with the Airport Authority of India (AAI), Air India and Boeing are in talks to get the 'flying extravaganza' to Hyderabad and exhibit it before the 20,000-strong crowd, expected to throng the venue on the last two days. The event will be held between March 14 and 18.

Also, to make up for the missing aerobatics __ it has been discouraged this year in the light of the air crash in 2010 __ FICCI officials say that they have arranged for some special 'entertainment' for the public and expect it to be well-received. "We cannot divulge too much information at this stage as we are still in the process of finalising the schedule. We can, however, say that it is going to be something similar to the aerobatics seen in the past," a senior FICCI official said.

While the industry body on its part has brought onboard as many as 13 aircraft operators from across the globe to participate in the event, AAI has erected a Rs 3.5 crore worth state-of-the-art auditorium at the Begumpet airport, the official venue of the air show, to give the event an international feel. Even runways, parking areas and hangers have been revamped by the airport authorities, especially for the aviation show.

But even as preparations seem to be on a full swing for the much-awaited event, there seems to be some trouble brewing between the two primary organisers __ AAI and FICCI. According to sources, AAI officials are believed to have expressed concern over revenue sharing with FICCI.

While the official arrangement between the two parties states that revenue generated though the air show will be equally divided among them, AAI officials fear that it might not be the case eventually as monetary control lies with FICCI, citing certain misgivings they had with the industry body on the matter last year. "We have a 50-50 revenue sharing model but we had no idea about the total revenue collected last year."

Apparently, this year AAI is also trying to ensure that it gets more importance than it did last year. "But FICCI has already allotted prime slots to private exhibitors. While we agree that such a move would help us earn more money, it is important that the host organisation also gets prominence in the event. AAI has created some great work in the field of aviation (such as 'GAGAN' - GPS Aided Geo Augmentation Navigation), which we would like to exhibit during the show," said an AAI official on condition of anonymity.

FICCI officials, however, maintained that all was well between the two bodies. Speaking to TOI from Singapore, Vinay Shankar Mathur, assistant general secretary (trade fairs), FICCI, said, "There is absolutely no rift between us (AAI and FICCI). We had in fact handed over a chartered accountant-certified report to AAI on the revenue generated in 2010." Mathur also said that he had personally spoken to the chairman of AAI who had confirmed that there was no concern (with regard to revenue) on AAI's part.

Civil aviation ministry officials refused to comment on the issue.

While hyd increased its rating to 4.57, looks like that was not enough to keep to the #1 slot. Hyd was #1 last two years. Cancun and Nagoya must have had major improvements last year. Hyd needs to get it #1 back next year.

Photo Kiosk installed at RGIA
Hyderabad |12 February2012
First time in any Indian airport, where passengers can capture their memories with the Airport as a background, free of cost

After its continuous efforts to present convenient and comfortable travel of international standards to the passengers, Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA), operated by the acclaimed GMR Group, has now moved one step ahead in making their transit a memorable journey too. As one of its initiatives in this direction, the Airport has installed a Photo Kiosk for passengers to capture their memories of RGIA. Set-up at the Domestic departures, post security hold area, this kiosk offers options of Airport backgrounds for passengers to choose from.

The unique concept of a photo kiosk, is being introduced for the first time in any Indian airports, that too free of cost.

Passengers can just walk into this kiosk, which has a touch screen with self-explanatory option buttons. They have to enter their names, email IDs and then pose in front of the camera stationed in the kiosk. Next, options of backgrounds can be explored, frame adjusted and getting a photo is just a click away! The pre-designed background of RGIA pictures, whether it is the swanky terminal building, beautiful landscape, ATC tower or others, help carry their presence at the airport along with them. Finally, the photo can be emailed to the passengers' email IDs without any cost.

Interestingly, the installation of the photo kiosk has drawn immediate attention of not only passengers but also celebrities travelling through RGIA.

New Haj House to solve pilgrims' woes

J.S. Ifthekhar
Haj Committee sends proposal for 10 acres of land, sanction of Rs. 12.51 crore
Wakf Board willing to allot land at Mamidipally village near Shamshabad airport

The new Haj House will come up on a built up area of 5576 sq. metres



Hyderabad: As preparations are on for the 2011 edition of Haj, authorities are hopeful that next year pilgrims will embark on the consecrated journey from a new Haj House. This follows Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy's decision to allot land near the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Shamshabad.

Announcement

The Chief Minister made this announcement during the Rachabanda programme held in the old city on February 3. The State Haj Committee has promptly sent a proposal seeking allotment of 10 acres of land and sanction of Rs. 12.51 crore for construction of the new Haj House.

Authorities hope the government will earmark the funds in this year's budget so that work can start immediately.

Land allotment

The Wakf Board, it is said, is willing to allot the required land in survey No. 99/1 of Mamidipally village in Saroornagar Mandal near the Shamshabad airport.“The matter is now pending with the government. If land and funds are allotted, the new structure will be ready by next year,” says Haj Committee chairman, Syed Khaleeluddin Ahmed.

Accommodation

The initial proposal submitted to government provides for accommodation of 4,000 pilgrims and as many visitors at a time in the new Haj House.

Obviously authorities have kept in mind future needs in view of the increasing number of pilgrims every year.

The new Haj House will come up on a built up area of 5,576 sq. metre. Besides a mosque, it will have a hospital with all facilities.

Space is also proposed for counters of Central Haj Committee, Passport issuance, immigration, customs halt area, bank, A.P. Transco.

Centralised kitchen

A centralised kitchen is proposed with a 4,000-capacity dining hall.

There will be adequate parking facility to accommodate pilgrim vehicles numbering 500, visitors (1500), officials (200), RTC buses (20) and DGT vans (10) is planned.

Congested

The need for a spacious Haj House is felt with the existing premises becoming congested even though it boasts of an 11-storyed structure.

There is simply no place to accommodate pilgrims from districts with the result they are forced to sleep in the corridors.

With bigger premises, the accommodation problem will be a thing of the past, it is hoped.
