This will be the first exposure of AAI to financial markets. The company's capital expenditure in FY19 is projected to be around Rs 4,100 crore, compared to Rs 2,500 crore for the current financial year ending on March 31. The domestic aviation market is growing at high double digits and to meet the rising demand, infrastructure capacity needs to be ramped up. AAI - which operates more than 120 airports in different parts of the country - is scouting for rupee term loans to the tune of Rs 1,500 crore, according to a recent public notice. Megaprojects of new terminal buildings are to start at Guwahati, Leh, Patna, Trichy, Vijayawada, Jabalpur, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Srinagar, Pune, Lucknow, Mangalore, Dehradun, and Jaipur.
