Project Description
Kazi Nazrul Islam Airport is a new greenfield airport located in Durgapur in India’s West Bengal state. The airport is part of the Bengal Aerotropolis Project, which is India’s first aerotropolis project and its first privately owned merchant airport. The aerotropolis will establish a township comprising residential, civic and commercial facilities, an information technology park, an industrial park, and a logistics hub, around the new airport.

CAI has been involved in the project since its inception, having conducted the initial reviews of the airport master plan, preparing the concept design of the airport, including the passenger terminal building, runways and taxiways, and all aviation support facilities. CAI’s airport planning and consultancy team continued to support the local management team during the construction of the airport and in finalising airport contracts with key airport stakeholders such as the fuel farm operator and facility management service provider.

CAI has also been involved in developing airline route development and marketing strategy and training the local management team in formulating an operations readiness plan to help airport become operationally ready. CAI is working closely with the local management team on township sales plan and marketing to local and overseas investors.

CAI has a 36.7 percent stake in the development. Read more here.
