“Five food stalls have been launched already and by December -end all the food and beverage outlets will be operational,” said Negi while speaking to the Times of India. “Low cost food for taxi operators and airline staff members will also be opened outside the airport terminal.” The AAI will also get Rs.4 crore on a monthly basis as a concession fee from the revamped travel, food and retail companies at the airport.

“An application to serve alcohol has been made to the local excise department. AAI will go as per the local regulations of the state, which will decide what kind of excise licence can be given to an airport,” said K L Sharma, executive director, commercial, at AAI headquarters. The plan according to Negi is to set up 36 food and beverage outlets at domestic and international terminals which is a big step forward as there are only two food stalls and one restaurant available currently.
