New airport terminal to be ready months before its 2021 deadline

Chennai: The new integrated terminal being built between the domestic and international terminals in the city airport might be be ready well ahead of the 2021 deadline.
Airports Authority of India (AAI) has decided to advance by three to four months the deadline for phase 2 expansion of the airport, which includes building the new terminal, straightening of a taxiway, building rapid exit taxiways. This indicates the facilities will be ready by the end of 2020 or early 2021.
The possibility to advance the deadline was discussed at a project review meeting held by AAI chairman Guruprasad Mohapatra on Friday.
Sources said, “The deadline was set at 2021 to ensure adequate buffer for delays during construction. There was a delay in completing the existing domestic and international terminal, opened in 2013. But the progress in phase 2 expansion is so efficient that there is a feeling it can be completed before deadline.”
