Under the Airports Economic Regulatory Authority Act, 2008 (AERA), the Union Ministry of Civil Aviation designated the Srinagar airport as a “major airport” on Saturday.

“The central government thus designates the airport of Srinagar as a major airport in exercise of the powers provided by sub-section I of Section 2 of the Airports Economic Authority Act, 2008 (NO. 27 OF 2008),” states the announcement.

The ruling would empower the AERA to set the cost for aeronautical services at the Srinagar airport, including the development charge and passenger service fee.

If an airport reaches a certain level of yearly passenger traffic, it is designated as a major airport by the Centre.

Previously, the Srinagar airport’s traffic was determined by the Airports Authority of India, which is part of the Ministry of Civil Aviation.
