January 22, 2024
Get ready to be blown away by the newest addition to India's aviation industry! The Kempegowda International Airport in Bangalore has done it again!
With the inauguration of their stunning new Terminal 2, which has been aptly named the Garden Terminal. This marvel of modern architecture is a shining example of how sustainability and aesthetics can go hand in hand.
With over 10,000 square meters of green walls, Terminal 2 offers a unique "walk in the garden" experience that is sure to soothe your senses. When booking a flight to Bangalore, be ready to be charmed by the artificial waterfalls and the outdoor garden surrounding a beautiful lagoon, inspired by the Singapore Changi International Airport.
New Terminal, New Era!
With the development of the Garden Terminal over a whopping 2,55,645 square meters! This impressive project is worth INR 5000 crore and is being completed in phases, with the first phase already done and dusted in mid-2023.
This new terminal is a game-changer, with the capacity to handle a whopping 25 million passengers annually. That's right, Bangalore Airport is doubling its current capacity to handle civil traffic, bringing it up to a whopping 50 million per annum! This puts it on par with some of the biggest and busiest airports in the world. Like Miami International Airport, George Bush International Airport in Houston, Narita International Airport in Japan, London Gatwick Airport, and Shanghai International Airport, all known for their pre-pandemic passenger-handling capacities.
DID YOU KNOW?
Since its opening for international operations, Terminal 2 has been handling more international flights to Bangalore than Terminal 1.
The infrastructure of this Garden Terminal is mind-blowing and includes:
- It integrates 90 check-in counters
- 20 security checkpoints
- 9 baggage carousels
- 15 bus gates
- 60 immigration counters.
But wait, there's more! Bangalore Airport is the biggest gateway to South India for nonstop flights from the USA and other countries, and soon, immigration clearance will be even faster. The congestion-free space in T2 will let travelers breathe easily even during peak times of the year.
Now, let's talk about the interior of this airport
The Garden Terminal is like a bamboo paradise! The use of engineered bamboo, a highly renewable material, in designing the interior of T2 not only delivers on the airport’s promise of being sustainable but also lends a natural feel to the aesthetic beauty of the terminal. The bamboo innovation harmonizes with the lush green landscape, making the terminal a visual treat.
The Best Part?
Just like Delhi IGI Airport, Kempegowda BLR Airport is also set to equip its new Terminal 2 with 5G internet technology. And that's not all - Bengaluru is home to India's first smart airport, complete with Aadhaar-enabled entry and biometric e-boarding. This cutting-edge technology ensures a seamless and secure travel experience for passengers.
With its recent recognition as one of the most beautiful airports in the world by UNESCO, Bangalore Airport promises a travel experience like no other. So, are you excited to experience the unique infrastructure and cutting-edge technology in the Kempegowda International Airport Terminal 2 in Bangalore?
