Vadodara Airport, also known as the Civil Airport Harni, has completed construction of its new 18,000m2 international terminal. The new terminal will be capable of handling 700 passengers an hour including 200 international travelers, and it will have 10 check-in counters.
The airport, which is in the suburb of Harni in the northeast of Vadodara, Gujarat, India, is currently putting the final touches to the facility to ensure it meets international standards. The facility is likely to be commissioned very soon, according to airport operator, Airports Authority of India.
Work began on the new terminal in 2009, with construction commencing in May 2011. The project is in line with the Airports Authority of India’s plans to modernize India’s airports so that they offer the same levels of service as other international airports.
The new terminal will be used for international flights to neighboring countries. Flights to the USA and UK are not possible, as the length of the airport’s existing runway cannot cater for large aircraft.
