Mumbai: Bengaluru-based GMR Infrastructure Ltd on Wednesday said its airport unit will provide training and consultancy services for Oman’s state-owned airport operator.
The GMR subsidiary will provide services ranging from programme management, testing and commissioning of airport systems to development of aeronautical and non-aeronautical revenue streams for the Oman firm.
GMR Airport Developers Ltd and Oman Airport Management Co., (OAMC) have signed a so-called memorandum of understanding (MoU) in this regard.
The GMR unit will provide on-site support for six months at Salalah Airport, which will help the OAMC team to learn and adapt some of the best practices at Delhi and Hyderabad airports.
The Bengaluru-based infrastructure conglomerate operates India’s busiest airport, the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi. It has also developed and commissioned the greenfield international airport at Hyderabad.
“GMR Group is the world’s fourth largest private airport developer and possesses end to end capabilities in the airport space,” said Srinivas Bommidala, business chairman, airports, GMR Group.
Bommidala said GMR has been engaging with and offering consultancy services to airport companies in the Middle East and South East Asia.
Early this month, rival and Hyderabad-based infrastructure conglomerate GVK Power and Infrastructure Ltd had formed a new company to offer technical services to airports in India and abroad.
The new company, GVK Airport Services Pvt. Ltd, will offer technical and consultancy services to airports in India and abroad.
GVK has developed two airports in Mumbai and Bengaluru and is developing two airports in Indonesia as well.
