Expansion of Private Jet Parking Stands at Ahmedabad Airport

With the increasing number of private jets, Ahmedabad Airport has recently expanded its parking facilities. Currently, there are 18 parking stands dedicated to private jets at the airport, accommodating a total of 53 aircraft. 

This expansion has been crucial as the number of jets owned by industrialists, notably Adani Group with the largest fleet of eight jets, has risen significantly. Previously, the airport had only 38 to 40 parking stands for various sizes of aircraft.

Parking Shortage in Ahmedabad Due to Increasing Demand for Private Jets

The number of domestic flights is increasing daily, leading to a rise in nighttime parking demand. Consequently, finding parking for private jets in Ahmedabad is becoming challenging. As a result, situations may arise where industrialists have to park their jets in airports like Vadodara, Surat, or Rajkot. 

Surat airport authorities have received inquiries from industrialists regarding space allocation for jet parking after Ahmedabad’s privatization. Alongside parking, various charges, including those for takeoff and landing, have also seen an increase. This suggests that Gujarat may experience a surge in demand for jets in the near future.
