Inactive airports might be converted to SEZs


  1. News: Centre is planning to convert unused airports in India into Special Economic Zones (SEZ)
  2. Aim: For aircraft leasing companies to park their aircraft and showcase them to potential customers
  3. Leasing companies could park 50-100 aircrafts in an airport, post which airline companies can take test flights and place orders
  4. Dismantling an aircraft at dormant airports is also being looked at – a move that could attract the Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) sector
