  • The DGCA extends the aerodrome license for Lucknow airport by five years.

Passengers from Lucknow and the surrounding areas can currently travel to 25 domestic and 8 international destinations through Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport in Lucknow.

The Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport (CCSIA), Amausi, Lucknow, has had its aerodrome license renewed by the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). The license will be valid once again starting on September 27, 2023, and will remain so for 5 years until September 26, 2028. An airport operator is granted the license in order to ensure total management of the airport.

“On September 27, 2021, for a period of six months ending on March 26, 2022, the DGCA first issued the aerodrome licence to the Lucknow International Airport Limited, which manages Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport. After that, the civil aviation regulator extended it for another 18 months, to September 26, 2023,” said Rupesh Kumar, a spokesman for the Lucknow airport.

The most recent extension is for five years. A crucial piece of paperwork for the airport operator is the license issued in accordance with Rule 78 of the 1937 Aircraft Rules. The license certifies that the aerodrome complies with the requirements set forth in the Civil Aviation Requirement section of the civil aviation regulator with regard to its management systems, operational procedures, physical characteristics, assessment and treatment of obstacles, visual aids, rescue, and firefighting, Kumar continued.

“By increasing the number of flights run to various destinations from Lucknow, new airlines like Indigo, Air Asia India, Akasa, and Thai Air Asia have improved internal and international connectivity. Passengers from Lucknow and the surrounding areas can already access 25 domestic and 8 international destinations through CCSIA, he said.
Currently, the CCSIA manages 17,700 people on average each day while running about 125 flights. The CCSIA tallied over 1.55 million passenger journeys in Q1 2023–24.
