Lodon's dynamic and youthful mayor Boris Johnson had nothing but praises in his bag for the airports in Delhi and Hyderabad. He even expressed that their won London's Heathrow was lacking in some facilities that these modern marvels house.
He has even chalked out plans for a four-runway airport in East London. He visited India back in November 2012 and ever since has been contemplating a better London airport for added flight capacity and more people landing in the city.
He said that Heathrow that currently runs at 98% capacity has no space for newer flights and hence should learn from Indian counterparts to expand the space. “I want to emulate India and create a new hub airport in the east of London," Johnson said.
What took him by pleasant surprise by Hyderabad airports Airotropolis, a city that grows around an airport instead of having the airports in one far end of the city. How far is that from the real fact that the Shamshabad airport is farther away from the city than any other landmark the is listed as Hyderabad?
