15-12-2021 -Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL), a GMR Group-led consortium, has successfully completed the expansion work of first phase of smart Apron of Terminal 1. Enhanced Operational Efficiency will lead to reduction of ~70kg of CO2 emissions per flight The Apron is being built in three phases. In the first phase, 19 out of 82 Code C stands have been constructed. The 19 new stands have become operational after statutory approval from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). Upon completion of the entire T1 Apron works, the total number of parking stands on the T1 Apron would increase from 55 (prior to commencement of Phase 3A works) to 82, including 22 contact stands and 8 MARS stands (which can cater to both Code C and Code E aircraft). The new apron would help reduce air traffic congestion on the Airside. Its new layout would facilitate improved air traffic flow and enhance Airside safety. The creation of new contact stands would lead to reduction in the number of Ground Support Equipment (GSE). This will ensure faster aircraft turnaround time and improve safety in the Apron area, resulting in improved operational efficiency on the airside. As a result of the improved air traffic flow, the estimated reduction in CO2 emissions from the aircrafts would be ~70 kg per flight. Once the 22 contact stands equipped with Bridge Mounted Equipment (BME) are made operational, a further reduction of ~255 kg of CO2 emissions per aircraft per turnaround process for domestic airlines is expected.
