Shirdi Airport: The company is also planning to save on its electricity bills. For this, it is planning to lease out around three acres to a private company.
The Maharashtra Airport Development Company (MADC) has decided to construct a budget hotel and a 5-star hotel just next to the Shirdi Airport. The move will help the MADC monetise huge land resources it has around Shirdi Airport.
The 5-star hotel may have facilities like wellness centre, which will offer meditation, vipassana and yoga. The company has also decided to lease out seven acres of its land for 66 years for building these hotels. The land will be leased in lieu of upfront payment. This means, the MADC will take the lease rent for 66 years in advance, said a DNA report.
