HYDERABAD AND BENGALURU AIRPORTS RANKED THE MOST ACCESSIBLE AMONG THE FACILITIES IN SIX METROS OF THE COUNTRY



Hyderabad and Bengaluru airports are the most accessible among the facilities in six metros of the country while the national capital find a place at the bottom only.

A study 'Benchmarking of Accessibility and Connectivity of Indian Airports' by New Delhi-based School of Planning and Architecture (SPA) showed that the two south Indian airports are in first two positions compared to those in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai or Kolkata.

The accessibility rate was calculated in the study conducted by SPA student Amal Jose under the guidance of Senior Professor (Transport Planning) Dr Sewa Ram by taking the average of time taken during non-peak and peak traffic.

"One of the reasons for Bengaluru faring better is due to the location of the airport in the outskirts. So once you leave the city, you will get a good speed. Hyderabad tops the list mainly because of the dedicated corridor to the airport," Sewa Ram told DH.

Though Delhi fares better on overall connectivity, largely due to the huge volume of air traffic, reaching the capital's airport is a task.

Delhi finds a place at the last position in the study of 60 metro and non-metro airports in terms of accessibility while Hyderabad is at third position, Bengaluru is at seventh, Chennai 46th and Kolkata 59.

The study finds that reaching the airports in Hyderabad and Bengaluru through car is the best among the six metros.

During non-peak traffic hours, reaching the Bengaluru airport from the city centre, Shivaji Nagar, takes 39 minutes while it takes 57 minutes during peak traffic. Bengaluru has the least variation in the time taken during non-peak and peak traffic hours at 46.2% while in Delhi it is 145.2%.

The connectivity of airports through public transport is better in Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru is better compared to New Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai.

While a vehicle can get an average speed of 35.1 km/hr on way to Hyderabad airport from the city centre, it comes down to 28.4 km/hr for Bengaluru and 23.5 km/hr for Chennai. It is 21.4 km/hr for Mumbai, 20.2 km/hr for Kolkata and 20.1 km/hr for Delhi.

GMR Hyderabad airport to see ₹2,500-cr capacity expansion

Hyderabad, May 22: GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd is poised for a capital expenditure of about ₹2,500 crore towards expansion of the greenfiled airport from the present capacity to handle 12 million passengers per annum to 20 mppa.
The airport is already functioning at more than its capacity to handle about a million passengers a month with 2016 witness to over 15 million passengers, registering a growth of over 20 per cent in a calendar year.

Expansion plans: The Hyderabad airport is in the process of finalising its expansion project that would enhance the capacity to 20 million passengers a year.
According to India Ratings & Research, a Fitch group company, to expand the capacity to 20 mppa, the airport will require an outlay of ₹2,500 crore, of which 70 per cent will be through debt and the balance through internal accruals and equity.
The airport has been witness to a strong traffic volume growth of 22 per cent. There is also the possibility of the Airports Economic Regulatory Authority enforcing the new aero charges from October 2017. This will possibly mean higher revenues.
Rating upgrade: India Ratings Associate Director Siva Subramanian told BuisnessLine, “The credit rating upgrade to stable reflects higher than expected growth of 22 per cent during financial year 2017 in passenger volumes. There are indicators to point that the growth is likely to sustain the current level.”
All of the airport bank loans of ₹1,286.4 crore, external commercial borrowings of $73.15 million, fund-based facilities of ₹550 crore and two non-fund based Rs 750 crore each have been upgraded by the rating agency to Ind AA, giving Outlook Stable. This means it will be able to easily access debt, refinance and raise funds through bonds.
SGK Kishore, CEO, GHIAL, said in a recent statement, “As interim measures to manage the current traffic growth, reorientation of various passenger check points within the terminal is being tried and undertaken.”
The airport reported the highest passenger growth among four private airports and its cargo volumes growth was at 10 per cent over previous financial year.
Revenue growth: The airport revenue increased to ₹1,156 crore in FY 2017 from ₹645 crore in FY 2016, due to increase in traffic and resumption in ad hoc user development fee collections.
There have been reports about the developers holding parleys to divest part of their stake to a sovereign debt fund from Abu Dhabi, which has been active in India.
The greenfield airport has been developed by GMR in partnership with Airports Authority of India (13 per cent), Telangana government (13 per cent) and Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (11 per cent).

Any idea how many domestic flights are parked in Hyderabad in the night and which carrier has the most?
Based on a look at the Airline schedules, this is a breakdown:

1. Air India- 4 (3-A319 & 1-A321)
2. Air India Regional- 1 (ATR 72)
3. IndiGo- 14 (Mix of A320 & A320 Neo)
4. SpiceJet- 6 (2-B737 & 4-Q400)
5. Go Air- 1 (A320)
6. TruJet- 4 (ATR 72)

That would bring the total to 30 aircraft's. Jet Airways used to park 2 B737's but now they are used for the Abu Dhabi & Dammam flight rotations.

Others may contribute if there are any inconsistencies.

Hyderabad airport on growth runway, passenger flow takes 22% leap

Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) in Hyderabad is cruising high.So vigorous has the growth been in corporate and leisure-related travel to and from Hyderabad and its catchment areas, in addition to increasing regional connectivity , that passenger traffic at RGIA has overshot its initial capacity of 12 million to zoom past the 15million mark.
RGIA authorities said, in 2016-17 overall passenger traffic shot up approximately 22% to 15.24 million from 12.49 million in 2015-16. Of this, domestic passengers accounted for 1,19,36,975 and international passengers were 33,03,093.
The big thrust came from domestic traffic, which grew by whopping 55% in the 2011-17 period. Even movement of domestic aircraft registered 27.1% year-on-year growth in FY17-highest among all metro airports in India.
Ten domestic carriers connect Hyderabad with 33 domestic destinations, while 15 foreign and three Indian carriers connect the city with 16 international destinations. Since beginning its operations at Shamshabad in 2008, the GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL) led RGIA has registered a growth of 60% in domestic passenger traffic and 63% in international passenger traffic.
Today Hyderabad airport is one of the top four private airports in the country along with those in New Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru, which together cater to nearly 55% of the country's total air traffic. The airport's take-off on the growth runway is visible from the strengthening of connectivity between various tier-II cities.
According to reports, on June 1 this year SpiceJet launched its first ever direct flight service connecting Surat to Hyderabad. Similarly , Indigo is expanding its network by adding new direct flights from Hyderabad to Chennai, Raipur and Pune from June 10.
Hyderabad-based airline TruJet, too, is waiting in the wings to launch flights on HyderabadCuddapah and Hyderabad-Nanded routes.
"In FY17, not only did RGIA add two new domestic airlines but also several new routes have been started leading to this remarkable growth in passengers. In the recent past, RGIA has been connected with airports including Jabalpur, Chandigarh, Trivandrum, Cuddapah and Nanded," said a GHIAL spokesperson, adding that over the next few months the airport will also be connected to Patna and Guwahati airports.

Aviation experts attribute rise in footfall to increased traffic towards the MiddleEast. "There has been a dramatic increase in passenger traffic at airports in the southern part of the country . Increased connectivity with the Middle-East is a major reason for the rise in footfalls in Hyde rabad," said Kapil Kaul, chief operating officer and director at the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation.
With traffic expected to zoom to 20 million in the next five years, GHIAL is learnt to be planning an expansion of the terminal to keep pace with the anticipated growth. Expansion is currently at the preliminary stage and the proposal will be taken up after all approvals are in place.
Even a report published by Crisil points out that Hyderabad is among the top four private airports in the country that is operating at near-full capacity and will need to spend heavily on expansion through 2021.
"Because of surging footfalls and high capacity utilisation of over 90%, we estimate that the four airports will need to invest about Rs 27,000 crore for expansion. Yet their credit quality will not suffer because of low implementation risk -such expansions are brownfield and modular in nature -and conducive traffic regulation," said Gurpreet Chhatwal, the president of Crisil Ratings.
