Over the past few weeks, Indore's Devi Ahilya Bai Airport has been on a roll. Recently, the airport had acquired land from six adjoining villages to make the airport fit to be an international one. Earlier, the airport also got a new aero bridge that helps with international departures. The newest such development from the Indore airport comes in the form of a new terminal. This terminal should be ready in a few years.

What's the update?

As part of the construction of a new airport terminal at Indore airport, the goal is to have up to 60 lakh passengers at the terminal. The authorities have already received confirmation from the higher ups and are looking to make Indore airport a world class one. With the newly launched international flights, the influx of passengers from different countries will also rise, which is a major reason to construct the new, state of the art terminal.

Currently, Indore airport is in a good shape. However, new infrastructure is being developed all over the airport so that it lives up to the international tag. As per reports, the Indore airport saw a 20% rise in passengers in just the last year. The goal of the new terminal is to make sure that it can hold double the amount of passengers than it can now. It seems that Indore airport won't be the same anymore.

Whom will it benefit?

The upcoming development at Indore airport will ensure that passengers going out of the city or coming in to town have a better first impression of the city. In addition to that, the airport will also provide better services to the passengers who visit the airport on a regular basis.

The cost of construction of an entirely new terminal is approximately ₹475 crores and we're expecting it to have some great conveniences. In addition to that, the recently acquired land will also be used to build a new runway, which means that more flights can originate and depart from Indore, which would greatly help with matters in the city. The international flight from Indore will depart on July 15 and will be a Dubai bound flight.
