Airport Authority of India’s (AAI) workers have gone on an indefinite strike against the governments plans of privatization of a couple of Indian Airports. Just imagine the problems caused, when airplanes do not fly from many airports in India due to this strike. This is the price we have to pay for modernization.

If the private companies come and modernize the airport, these workers (AAI staffs) will have to work more (efficiently) and lot of them will probably loose their jobs.

I wonder how a developing country will prosper in these situations, where one of the most important modes of transportation is standing still. To be a part of the globalization, developing infrastructure is the first priority, and India lacks that.

Currently, the Indian Air Force has taken charge of the Airport and airplanes are flying but with a lot of problems. Dirty airports, no trolleys, no public announcements, etc are few problems faced by the passengers.

airports have always been a problem in india...privitized airports r way better than the govt. ones...just take a look at the mumbai domestic airport, they have two terminals, one for indian airlines (govt. airline) and the other for private airlines such as jet airways, sahara, kingfisher, spice jet, etc etc...

maybe in metro cities, they should have two domestic terminals like mumbai does (dont know if they already do)..it is a) easier to maintain and b)govt. and private companies can invest in as much money as they like c) easier to control the crowd (as in if there is only 1 terminal, then the crowd can sometimes get hard to handle (esp. during flight delays))...just an idea.
