Stalls at Chennai Airport selling expensive price for Water Bottles
Airport Authority of India (AAI) gave permission for many private stalls to be placed at Chennai Airport for selling various products for the passengers. There was an order for these shops for not to sell bottled water. Even new stalls planning to sell packaged food must not have bottled water into their menu list. This order is now be benefited by old stalls and outlets that sell water at very expensive prices. The competition for these stalls is to be held back by this order.
Already there are thousand complaints from Passengers regarding these expensive prices of Bottle water in Airport premises. Bottles have special tags of prices made for Airport business only which has given many negative feedbacks from public. But government of India and AAI gave an entirely opposite blow to benefit of these old outlets and keeping public hospitalization completely out of question
A bottle of water is sold for Rs 50 and above at many important points of the Airport and by the decision of resisting the new stalls not to sell water which will further lead to the public rage and anger against the Airport Authorities says an Insider of the AAI.
D Sudhakara Reddy, Air Passengers Association of India (APAI) National President stated that the Airport Authorities should offer multiple options for passengers. He also stated that those who are not interested to buy bottled waters must have an alternate option and this is the right to have the basic need of life inside a government owned public transportation premise.
