Rs 2,500 crore terminal to come up at Chennai airport: AAI official

Chennai: A new terminal with a parking bay for aircraft and a multi-level car parking facility would be set up at a cost of Rs 2,500 crore under phase II of the Chennai airport modernisation programme, an AAI official said Friday.

"We are going to develop a new terminal at a cost of Rs 2,500 crore and it will be ready in 42-45 months. That is our anticipation," airport director, Airports Authority of India (Chennai), G Chandramouli, told reporters.

He said passenger traffic has witnessed a 20 per cent growth in the last three months and if this trend continued, the existing terminal would not be able to handle it.

The new terminal, coming up under the Phase II modernisation programme, would be able to handle the increase in arrivals and departures, he said.
