PM to virtually inaugurate terminal building of Port Blair airport tomorrow

New Delhi: Port Blair’s Veer Savarkar International Airport’s new terminal will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday via video conferencing.

The new integrated terminal building, built at a cost of around Rs 710 crore, will hold a key role in boosting connectivity of the island union territory.

With a total built-up area of around 40,800 sqm., the new terminal building will be capable of handling about 50 lakh passengers annually.

An Apron, suitable for two Boeing-767-400 and two Airbus-321 types of aircraft has also been constructed at Port Blair airport at a cost of Rs 80 crore, making the airport now suitable for parking of ten aircrafts at a time.

The architectural design of the airport terminal, inspired by nature, resembles a shell-shaped structure depicting the sea and islands.

According to officials, the new terminal building will boost air traffic and help enhance tourism in the region. It will also help create enhanced employment opportunities for the local community and give a fillip to the economy of the region.
