AML Chairman, Mr Roshan Seetohul and Regional Director of Transinvest Cons. Ltd/ COLAS, Mr Jean Marie Maillet signed today the contractual agreements for the construction of the Aircraft Parking Stand No 16, the modification of Parking No 15 and other works on taxiways at SSR International Airport. Signing took place in the presence of AML CEO, Mr R. Bhoyroo and Head of Technical Services, Mr V. Huree.

At the end of this project worth more than 500 million rupees, our airport will be equipped with three parking stands capable of accommodating large aircraft, such as the A380. Two of stands will be serviced by  passenger bridges. The works also include the enlargement and repairs of certain taxiways.

The Contractor is presently mobilising on site and works should start as from next week. The expected completion date is around end of January 2017.

With this project, SSRIA is increasing its capacity to handle wide-body aircraft and be better prepared to face operational challenges ahead. A move that will further consolidate our position as Reference Airport in the region.
