Expansion of Jaipur airport; two buildings to be constructed soon

To cope up with the increasing passenger traffic, Jaipur airport will be going into an expansion mode. Plans are being made to expand the terminal horizontally and for this, it has been decided that two new buildings will be made.

There will be a separate building for arrival and departure. Sources informed that the contract has been awarded and work will start next year for this purpose. Currently, the airport is spread in 18000 square meter area and the expansion will make it spread in 1.25 lakh square meter area.

With separate buildings for arrival and departure, less passenger traffic will be there and will be easy to be managed by the airlines and security agencies. Jaipur had recently fallen in the airport ranking issued by an international body thanks to its current state wherein passenger rush can be seen early morning with major international airlines arriving and departing early morning along with many domestic flights.  All major big airports of the country have different entry points for arrival and departure which makes them look less congested.
One more international flight has stopped its operation from Jaipur International airport. Now two international flights have stopped their operations in less than a months time. Scoot airlines has stopped its Jaipur Singapore flight from Tuesday. The flight used to come from Singapore at 11:35 pm and used to fly back to Singapore at 12:35. Sources informed that due to less passenger load the airlines has stopped its operations.Before this, from March 1, Etihad airlines had stopped its Abu Dhabi flight from Jaipur. A lot of passengers used to take this flight for going to Dubai or USA, In less then a month’s time air connectivity to Dubai and Singapore has suffered.
