Shah Amanat Airport revenue hits record high

03 October 2022

Chattogram Bureau :
Shah Amanat International Airport in Chattogram has started reaping benefits from
ongoing infrastructure expansion and digitalisation projects, with the facility going beyond
the Tk100 crore mark in revenue for the first time in the last fiscal year - a feat that no
other airport outside Dhaka has ever achieved. According to the Bangladesh Civil Aviation
Authority's annual report for fiscal 2021-22, Shah Amanat Airport contributed Tk106 crore to the aviation authority's total revenue of Tk1,677 crore.The 20% year-on-year growth in earnings from the port city airport in FY22 also was 5% higher than the average annual growth in the civil aviation authority's revenue receipts in the past 10 years.
Wing Commander M Farhad Hossain Khan, director of Shah Amanat Airport, told media that
the airport's revenue earnings in recent years were nowhere near last year's figure. The previous highest income was in FY16 when the airport fetched Tk86 crore in revenue, he added.  Activities at the airport will get a greater push once several ongoing development projects are completed by June 2023, he continued.
The Civil Aviation Authority has undertaken measures to enhance the capacity of Shah Amanat International Airport. Consultants, who have already been appointed for the airport expansion project, will submit their plans within the next year.The aviation authority's annual report for FY22 says the recruitment of 70 officials to improve the quality of international services in the  field of civil aviation at Shah Amanat International Airport is at the final stage.
