Surat Airport gearing up for holistic development with world-class facilities

Jun 01:Surat, the financial capital of Gujarat and hub for diamond and textile business in India, attracts air travelers in large numbers. Considering the magnificent rise in passenger traffic, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) is extensively working towards the holistic development of the airport with a project cost of Rs 353 Crores.

  The development project includes the extension of the existing terminal building from 8474 sqm to 25520 sqm. In addition to the extension of the terminal building, the expansion of the apron from five parking bays to 18 Parking bays and the construction of a parallel taxi track (2905 m X 30 m) work is also in progress.

After completion of the project, the new state–of–the–art extended terminal building will be capable of handling 1200 Domestic and 600 International passengers during peak hours making the annual passenger capacity 2.6 Million. Equipped with all modern passenger amenities, the terminal building will have 20 check-in counters, five aerobridges, an In-Line baggage handling system, and five conveyor belts for arriving passengers.  The new terminal building will also have a parking area with a capacity for 475 cars.      

The terminal will be a 4-Star GRIHA-rated energy-efficient building with sustainability features. The interiors of the terminal building will reflect the art and culture of Gujarat. More than 58% of the work for the extension of the terminal building is complete and the building will be ready by 31st December 2022. 

Surat Airport caters to a large number of business communities across the country, as it is directly connected to 16 cities across the country. The new world-class terminal building of the airport will enhance the connectivity to this industrial City, giving impetus to the overall growth of the region.
