Panaji: The Aviation Skill Development Centre will now come up within the Mopa airport premises itself, chief minister Pramod Sawant said. Sawant said that an extension will be given for the Mopa project deadline.
He said a review of the Mopa works will be carried out in two months’ time. Sawant said the review was delayed due to the lockdown necessitated by the Covid-19 pandemic. Prior to the lockdown, the airport was expected to be operational by may 2022.
“Earlier, the aviation skill development centre was to be started at ITI in Pernem, now we have said that it should be constructed at the Mopa airport itself,” said Sawant.
