Planning has been an integral part of the AAI. Almost all departmental
processes at airports have been undertaken in-house, be it airport feasibility
studies, design of passenger terminals, cargo terminals, aircraft hangars,
aircraft parking stand with fuel hydrant systems, runways, taxiways, airport
lighting systems, electric supply arrangements, runway and taxiway lighting,
approach lighting systems, air-conditioning arrangements, passenger information
systems, baggage handling systems, car parking facilities etc.
38 Airport Architects, working in close coordination with Civil &
Electrical & HVAC Engineers, airport operation experts, air traffic
controllers etc. constitute the airport planning division. Airport master
planning including land use plans, environmental aspects etc. constitute an
integral part of airport planning processes.
The Airport Planning Department of the AAI utilizes in-house Computer Aided
Design (CAD) concepts.
