Construction works have started on Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport’s new integrated terminal building in Guwahati, Assam, India.

The first foundation stone for the terminal was laid on 28 January by Indian Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju and Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal.

The 9,000m² terminal building will feature new passenger facilities and is set to become operational in 2021.

It will have the capacity to handle 3,100 passengers during peak hours and its interiors will exhibit local handicrafts, murals and indoor green spaces.

“It is separated by a glass wall from the larger outdoor forest, fitting in like a tongue-in-groove with the terminal building.”

New facilities for passengers will include 64 check-in counters, 20 self-check-in desks, eight immigration counters, eight custom counters, six arrival carousels, ten escalators, 25 elevators, 16 self-baggage drop counters and 20 aircraft parking bays.

Additionally, the terminal will include a departure area, a security holding area, retail spaces for small businesses, food and beverage areas, baggage claim space and a common concourse area.

Design Forum International (DFI), one of the design firms working on the project, said in a statement: “The Guwahati Airport is designed with four-star GRIHA rating parameters. The indoor forest is a physical manifestation of this thought: it is separated by a glass wall from the larger outdoor forest, fitting in like a tongue-in-groove with the terminal building, and becoming an integral and inseparable part of the built whole.

“The car park structures are designed to be covered with photovoltaic panels that generate almost 500kW of solar energy.”

The airport is managed and operated by the Airport Authorities of India (AAI), and is also known as Guwahati International Airport.
