Airport terminals worked starting with no outside help, similar to the one in Bengaluru, offer an income offer as low as 4% to the state government. Old air terminals cultivated out to private administrators offer more. The administrators of two of India's greatest airport terminals—in Mumbai and in Delhi—offer 37% and 46%, separately.

The present airport terminal at Dabolim in Goa has as of now surpassed its ability to take care of five million travelers a year. Charges to and from Goa have a tendency to be high, particularly amid the crest season (December-January) and on weekends when voyagers run to its shorelines.
