Tripura’s Maharaja Bir Bikram Airport receives update

A new Integrated Terminal building is being constructed at Maharaja Bir Bikram Airport in the Indian state of Tripura as the existing terminal building was saturated with no further scope of expansion, according to AAI (Airports Authority India).

The facility will be equipped with 20 check-in counters, four passenger boarding bridges, conveyor belts and modern facilities and amenities. It has been designed to process 1,000 domestic and 200 international passengers during peak hours, making the annual handling capacity three million passengers.

Following the trend for Indian airports, the terminal will depict local art and heritage through its architecture. For example, a sweeping roof profile enveloping the entire terminal will take its form from the hilly terrain of the state of Tripura. AAI notes that it wanted to achieve a balanced mix of ecological infrastructure, art and building technology.
