G'barga airport to be ready by mid-2012

Regional Airport-Holdings International Limited (RAHI), which is developing the airport, said that the runway has been completed  up to the subgrade layer, adequate for landing of smaller aircraft. The excavation for the runway end safety area is under progress at both ends and apron and taxiway are also under construction.

RAHI is a joint venture  between IL&FS Transportation Network Limited and Comet Infra-Development Private Limited. RAHI Founder-Chairman Kumar Baveja said that  RAHI not only develops airports and associated infrastructure but also has its own  regional airline.

The company expects to operate its regional airline in tandem with the Gulbarga and Shimoga airports.
