Proposed medical tourism centre at Indian airport

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has issued a tender for opening a medical tourism centre - a first of its kind for India, although not globally at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport to help international medical tourists coming to the city of Ahmedabad.
Airport director R K Singh explains, ”The aim is to improve facilities for passengers and not just to earn money." AAI will provide 10 square meters of space at the arrival area of the international terminal to the highest bidder. The space will be provided at a lower price than what AAI charges for other counters like food and hotels. The aim is to provide necessary information on procedures, monetary transaction and international code of treatment.
