The new integrated terminal building being constructed at Pune airport with an investment of Rs 475 crore to handle 2,300 passengers during peak hours is expected to be completed by March 2022.
A multi-level car park (ground plus three-storeyed +2 basement floors) is also under construction at a cost of Rs 120 crore as part of the airport revamp plan, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) said in a release.
AAI has undertaken the construction work for the new integrated terminal building at Pune Airport in order to cater to the continuous surge in passenger traffic and ease congestion at the airport. More than 40 percent of the work is completed and the new building, which is spread in over 5 lakh sq ft area, is likely to be completed by March 2022, AAI said.
The swanky new terminal building will be able to process 2,300 passengers (1,700 domestic and 600 international) during peak hours, it said, adding that it will be equipped with five boarding bridges, 34 check-in counters, and an in-line baggage handling system.
Besides, 32,000 sq ft space has been provisioned for food and beverages and retail outlets inside the airport, the release said. The project also includes the construction of a service yard of 3,800 sq meter, a 10-lakh liter capacity underground tank, 1,130-kiloliters per day capacity sewage treatment plant, among others, it said.
With a parking capacity of 1,024 cars, the facility will be connected to the departure area of the existing building with a sky bridge with the provision of escalators and an elevator at the building side for dropping/going up. The car park facility is likely to be completed by April 2022, AAI added.
