Designed to grow
The airport covers a ground area of 24 square kilometers, and has two runways 2.3 kilometers apart. Nordic planned the terminal area to allow incremental growth up to 42 million passengers per year, which in airport terms is within the world’s top 30.
The masterplan allocated areas for railway services, hotels, cargo, maintenance facilities and an extensive airport city. There is room for expansion without affecting neighboring areas, and the airside taxiway system makes aircraft movement on the ground as short and sweet as possible.
Spirit of India
The terminal building itself is designed to capture the Indian spirit by combining lush outdoor park areas with a tent covered plaza.
