40% work on Trichy airport terminal building complete

TRICHY: More than 40% of construction work of the ongoing integrated passenger terminal building at Trichy international airport has been completed and the project will be ready by March 2022, officials said.
In order to reduce congestion at the airport, Airports Authority of India (AAI) has undertaken the expansion work which includes construction of a new terminal building, apron, air traffic control (ATC) tower and upgradation of air side facilities

The existing terminal, which is in use for both international and domestic air traffic, has exhausted its design capacity. The new terminal building being constructed at a cost of Rs 951.3 crore has been designed to accommodate 2,900 passengers during peak hours. Equipped with 48 check-in counters and 10 boarding bridges, it will be an energy-efficient building with sustainable features, officials said. 

With an area of 75,000 square metre, the building has been designed with majestic roof which gives the structure an iconic look. The intuitive form of the new terminal will create a unique architectural identity and add a new dimension to the terminal design, they said. The expansion project also includes construction of associated taxiways and isolation bay to make the airport suitable for multiple apron ramp system. Other than this, construction of a control room, supporting equipment rooms, terminal Radar, radar simulation, automation facilities, VHF, AAI offices and meteorological offices are also part of the project, the officials further stated.
