Current Issues
(as on 29 May 2008)
Air Traffic Control (ATC) not functioning properly in the initial days, causes delay in landing and parking. ATC was down at times in the initial days but it is okay after 5th day (29 May 2008). ATC working perfectly!

Ground Control - very bad and there is no sync between ATC and Ground control team. Aircraft has to wait for longer time to get parked in one of the parking bay. Good sync between ATC & Ground staff

Aerobridge: distance between two aero bridge doesn't fit
for parking two bigger aircrafts side by side,
1 & 3 aero bridge will be occupied, 2 will be unused.

Website - not user friendly… :( Airport Website is useful.
