"गोवा आंतरराष्ट्रीय विमानतळ" च्या विविध आवृत्यांमधील फरक

==इतिहास ==
हा विमानतळ [[भारतातील पोर्तुगीज सरकार]]ने १९५०च्या दशकात बांधला.<ref>[http://goancauses.com/9.html Os Transportes Aereos Da India Portuguesa</ref> २४९ एकर प्रदेश असलेला हा विमानतळ १९६१पर्यंत [[त्रांसपोर्तेस एरिओस दा इंदिया पोर्तुगेसा]] या विमानकंपनीचा मुख्य तळ होता. येथून [[कराची]], [[मोझांबिक]] आणि [[तिमोर]] सह अनेक ठिकाणी विमानसेवा उपलब्ध होती. [[गोवा मुक्तिसंग्राम|गोवा मुक्तिसंग्रामादरम्यान]] [[भारतीय वायुसेना|भारतीय वायुसेनेने]] या विमानतळावर बॉम्बफेक करुन हा तळ जवळजवळ निकामी करुन टाकला होता. त्यावेळी येथे असलेली दोन प्रवासी विमाने कशीबशी कराचीला निसटली.<ref>[http://www.colaco.net/1/GdeFdabolim1.htm Gabriel de Figueiredo.

During the Indian invasion of Goa, in December, 1961, the airport was bombarded by the Indian Air Force with part of the infrastructures being destroyed. Two civilian planes that were in the airport, one from [[TAP Portugal]] and the other from [[Transportes Aéreos da Índia Portuguesa|TAIP]] managed to escape during the night to Karachi. -->
[http://www.colaco.net/1/GdeFdabolim1.htm Gabriel de Figueiredo. A tale of a Goan Airport and Airline]</ref> In April 1962, it was occupied by the [[Indian Navy]]'s air wing when [[Major General]] [[K.P. Candeth]], who had led the successful military operation into Goa, "handed over" the airport to the Indian Navy before relinquishing charge as its [[military governor]] to a [[Lieutenant Governor]] of the then [[Union Territory]] of Goa in June. -->
The earliest international (i.e. non-Portuguese) tourists to Goa may have been the [[flower child]]ren of the 1960s. They used the overland route, by road or rail, from Bombay (now [[मुंबई]]), detouring via Poona (now [[पुणे]]), to north Goa's secluded beaches. A sea route was also available. For civilian air travel out of Vasco da Gama and Goa the Indian Navy and the [[Government of India]] invited the public sector airline (known now as [[Indian (airline)|Indian]]) to operate at Dabolim from 1966 after the runway was repaired and jet-enabled. Road and rail travel remains the mainstay of journeys between Goa and places like Mumbai and Bangalore though they take 12–15 hours nowadays (down from 24 hours at one time). -->
Dabolim's [[Air traffic control]] is in the hands of the Indian Navy, which earns revenues from this service on account of aircraft movements. Landing fees are of the order of Rs 17,000 each. RNF is about Rs 7,400. The [[Airports Authority of India]] could be eligible for aircraft parking fees of Rs 10,000 per day. It receives a part of the passenger service fee which is shared between it and the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF). The AAI's prime source of earning is from non-traffic services like passenger facilitation, car park, entry tickets, stalls, restaurants and shops at the main terminal building and advertising boards. With such revenues at an estimated Rs 700 million, Dabolim airport is one of only a dozen "profitable" airports of the [[Airports Authority of India]] (AAI).
Capital expenditures (such as for runway expansion) at the airport are covered by AAI. The Dabolim airport runway has increased in length over the years from about {{convert|6000|ft|m|0}} initially to at least {{convert|7850|ft|m}} today (approx 2,370 m) <ref>[http://www.world-airport-codes.com/india/dabolim-2604.html Dabolim Airport (GOI) Details - India<!-- Bot generated title -->]</ref> , and can now accommodate [[Boeing 747]]s. There is a shortage of night parking bays which are at a premium in metro airports like Mumbai. A local association has estimated that about 40 hectares are needed for the civil enclave in comparison to the 14 hectares earmarked at present.<ref>HASG.

The Indian [[Civil Aviation Ministry]] announced a plan to upgrade Dabolim airport in 2006. This involved constructing a new international passenger terminal (after converting the existing one to domestic) and adding several more aircraft stands over an area of about {{convert|4|ha}}. The construction was scheduled to be completed by the end of 2007.<ref>[http://www.hindu.com/2006/09/16/stories/2006091603051600.htm Dabolim airport upgrading will be over by end of 2007].
