The lives of people working at the old terminal building of Dabolim airport are at risk due to the movement of tankers containing aviation turbine fuel.
As per available information from some of the staff attached to the airlines, the constant movement of tankers loaded with aviation turbine fuel poses danger to the lives of people. It was disclosed that several tankers containing aviation turbine fuel from various petroleum companies make its way to the new terminal building of Dabolim airport in order to provide fuel to airlines which are parked on the apron. These tankers pass from the entrance gate of the old terminal building where several vehicles involving those of yellow black cabs are parked haphazardly.
“Airline staff besides passengers, policemen face a risk to their lives, incase of any accident which may take place at the entrance gate of the old Dabolim airport terminal due to constant movement of tankers, carrying aviation turbine fuel,” added an airline staff. He disclosed that the Airports Authority of India (AAI) should take the matter seriously and restrict parking of vehicles at the entrance gate of the old terminal building of Dabolim airport.
