Recently, Go First, the airline formerly known as GoAir, said it will offer flights to Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Bengaluru from Mopa airport starting from January 5, 2023.
Earlier, IndiGo announced that it would start 12 daily flights from the Mopa airport on January 5, with direct flights to all the major metros and Pune, Jaipur, and Ahmedabad.
The newly-inaugurated Mopa airport in north Goa has the capacity to handle extra large wide-body jet aircraft like an Airbus A380. The first phase of the Mopa airport was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The Rs 2,870-crore Mopa airport in its first phase will cater to around 4.4 million passengers per annum (MPPA), which can be expanded to a saturation capacity of 33 MPPA.
The airport has been built on the theme of sustainable infrastructure and has a solar power plant, green buildings, LED lights on the runway, rainwater harvesting, and state-of-the-art sewage treatment plant with recycling facilities, among other such facilities.
It has adopted some of the best-in-class technologies like 3-D monolithic precast buildings, StabilRoad, Robomatic hollow precast walls, and 5G compatible IT infrastructure. The foundation stone of this airport was laid by PM Modi in November 2016. The flight operations from Mopa airport will start from January 5 next year.
