Jammu Airport to get modernised terminal building by Aug

The Jammu Airport is set to offer a world-class experience to passengers with an expanded and modernised terminal along with aerobridges that will be completed by the end of this year.

"The ongoing project of Terminal building expansion is in its final phase and likely to be completed by the end of August," Airport Authority of India (AAI) Director D K Gautam said today.

Gautam said the Jammu Airport is being considered to be "hypersensitive" with several security restrictions besides by space constraint.

Execution of the massive expansion work without any flight disruptions and minimum inconvenience to the passengers is a major achievement for AAI, he said.

"Of the Rs 80 crore project, the complete departure hall at ground floor is now completed and will be open to passenger traffic by mid August. The first floor is be likely to be completed the same month," Gautam said.

The three aerobridges under construction are expected to be completed by September-end and will be commissioned by mid November, he added.
