In this case, Jamnagar became ‘Delhi’, Anant Ambani’s pre-wedding celebration changed the story.

Anant Ambani’s pre-wedding celebration

Jamnagar, the fifth largest city of Gujarat, located south of the Gulf of Kutch, has the largest oil refinery. The Ambani family’s house is also there. There is another place called Petrochemical Complex. All the special guests who had come to attend Anant Ambani’s pre-wedding function are staying there. The pre-wedding bash has now turned this quiet township of Reliance Industries into a buzzing place with jets ferrying movers and shakers from all over the world.

no parking space

The airport, which is a civil enclave at an Indian Air Force base with no parking space, was handling around 400 charter flights between Friday and Monday. In one line, so many guests arrived in their private jets to attend the function organized at the Ambani family house that the airport started having trouble handling the management. It is obvious that so many planes have come there together for the first time. Some experts are saying that at present the air traffic of Jamnagar has become like that of Delhi.

Davos meet is getting competition

Airport director Dhananjay Kumar Singh told Business Standard on Friday that ground handling and security staff will have to be strengthened to meet the huge air traffic demand. Around 400 charter flights are taking business leaders to global politics and cinema industry. The guest list in Jamnagar can rival the annual Davos meet. Names like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Fink, Gautam Adani, N Chandrasekaran, Kumar Mangalam Birla, Ajay Piramal, Rihanna, Shahrukh Khan, Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Sachin Tendulkar have arrived or are arriving.

Planning is being done like this

According to Singh, since there is no parking space at Jamnagar airport, charter planes are being parked at nearby airports like Rajkot, Porbandar, Ahmedabad and Mumbai. On Friday, Jamnagar airport was planned to handle the movement of 140 charter flights (70 departures and 70 arrivals), with about 50 per cent of the aircraft coming from abroad.
