However, new proposals to utilize the additional hours made available through round-the-clock operations are still awaited from the civil operators.

Naval authorities are also undertaking routine maintenance of the main runway from January 1. However, the airport continues to remain open for operations 24X7, and the repair work has been planned in a manner so as not to affect working hours of the airport in any way.
