Mangaluru: People opposed to airport name change may approach court


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Apr 5: Many activists have been objecting to the renaming of the Mangaluru international airport as Adani airport. Now they are mulling the option of going to court to get their demand met.

Many in coastal Karnataka had expressed opposition to handing over this airport to private operators and also about its name change. Among the activists, there were differences over what name this airport should bear.

Recently, the Airports Authority of India had issued notice to the Mangaluru airport on the chance of name, as the activists had written to them saying that changing the name of the airport is violation of rules.

Therefore, the chances of the issue of renaming the airport going to courts appear to be bright. The activists plan to collect opinions of legal experts and then file public interest litigation in the high court.

Social activist Dilraj Alva, said that brand value of Mangaluru should not be lost due to renaming of the airport. He said that the airport can be named after Koti Chennayya or other exemplary personalities who have brought laurels to Tulunadu.

    Chakuli Bomb stories and harrassment to passengers needs to be stopped.. Good services can make this airport active again with more jobs to locals and tulunaadu people.

    The Adani Group, which had won the concession to operate, manage and develop Mangaluru International Airport on a 50 year lease, took charge of the airport on the midnight of October 30, 2020. Under the agreed concession model, the operator can change the name of the airport to any thing else, that the operator seems necessary to increase it's visibility, improve profitability or simple market a brand proposition. So incase "kupa mandukas" have a challenge, should read some more before blaming Adani. Other than gulfies, hardly any other other "mangaloreans" use the airport, then why this humbug over a name change.

    As long as operations are carried out effectively and flights can take off and land safely I couldn't care less what the name of the airport is. All sensible flyers will know the airport code IXE will remain the same. Couldn't care any less about anything else. Waste of time.

    Name change of Mangalore Airport is absolutely nonsense. Mangalore Airport is well known all over the world. Please no name change. Who is this Adani who knows him and why his name to IXE airport. It makes no sense.

    Adani earned more than he spent by catching all gold and money smugglers. So lena dena kuch bacha nahi.....Here the land was given by the locals of mangalurians and name for Adani is it? Who have heard his name when the airport was built untill it was sold to Adani ?

    The Airport in Mangalore is still called Mangaluru International Airport. The name of the airport did not change with the change in the airport's operator. The airport is still owned by AAI ie Airports Authority of India who were previously operators as well. The operating rights have now been given to a private company IE. Adani Mangaluru International Airport Ltd which has "Adani Airports" as it's brand. Previously there were signboards of Airports Authority of India, now the signboards are of the new operator "Adani Airports". The airport name has not changed. It is Mangaluru International Airport.....NOT Adani Airports!!!

    The activists should understand that Adani Airports (not Adani Airport) is the name of the company that manages and maintains airports in the country. The present name MIA will remain until it is renamed by local authorities with the approval of the govt.

    Why not name after Srinivas Mallya? After all he did more for the development of Mangalore (including the creation of the Airport) than any other politician.
