Two multi-level car parks at Chennai airport to be ready by April 2021, says AAI

Chennai: The two multi-level car parks at Chennai airport will be ready by April 2021, with about 80% of the work completed so far, an Airports Authority of India (AAI) official said.

Construction, which began in March last year, is progressing fast to meet the April deadline, the official added.

The initial plan was to have two towers, flanking the airport metro station, but it was later revised to add a hotel and a mall.

With the old terminal building - which had a transit lodging facility - pulled down to build a new terminal, AAI decided to set up a hotel in one of the parking blocks.

Many airports abroad have hotels on campus or nearby, said an official, adding that a hotel would benefit transit passengers and business travellers.

The entire two-tower complex will come up across 4.25 acres at a cost of 250 crore and can accommodate a minimum of 2,000 cars. The tower on the west will have six parking levels, including the basement, a hotel spread across 2,749sqm and food and beverage retail stores across 4,804.85sqm. The one on the east will have seven parking levels, a multiplex spread across 3,717.61sqm and a mall spread over 14,030sqm and three levels.
