New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Friday inaugurate the Terminal 2 of Kempegowda International Airport at Bengaluru built at a cost of around Rs 5000 crore, officials said.
With the inauguration of Terminal 2, passenger handling capacity as well as counters for check-in and immigration will double, helping the people immensely. It will be able to handle more around 5-6 crore passengers annually from 2.5 crore currently, they added.
Terminal 2 is designed as a tribute to the Garden city of Bengaluru and the passenger experience is meant to be a ‘walk in the garden’.
Passengers will travel through 10,000 plus square meters of green walls, hanging gardens and outdoor gardens and these gardens have been made in India using indigenous technology.
This Airport has already established a benchmark in sustainability with 100% usage of renewable energy across the campus, officials said.
Terminal 2 has been created with sustainability principles woven into the design.
