This major step by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) is expected to give a major boost to Indian aviation sector. AAI is planning to upgrade runways at seven airports across the country by March 2022.

The extension of the runway of the Kolhapur airport from 1,370 metres to 2,300 metres has begun and is planned to be completed by December this year.
