PM inaugurates Bengaluru Airport’s Amazing Terminal!




Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday inaugurated the glitzy Terminal-2 of the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) in Bengaluru. Nicknamed "Terminal in a garden", this eco-friendly facility has been built largely using bamboo and will cater to 2.5 crore passengers annually. The estimated construction cost for this terminal is around ₹5,000 crore



"The T2 is an architectural wonder, which is a first-of-its-kind 'Terminal in a Garden'. It will have lush greenery within and outside and will be a visual delight like no other in the world. The passengers' experience is designed to be a walk in the garden while traveling through the new terminal," KIA official said as reported by PTI. One of the biggest attractions is the hanging garden.





  • "Passengers will travel through 10,000 sq . The Airport has already established a benchmark in sustainability with 100% usage of renewable energy across the campus," the statement said.

  • The facility has been created with sustainability principles woven into the design. Based on the sustainability initiatives, the Terminal-2 will be the largest terminal in the world to be pre-certified platinum rating by US GBC (green building council) prior to commencing operations, the statement read.

  • "The theme of ‘Naurasa’ unites all the commissioned artworks for Terminal 2. The artworks reflect the heritage and culture of Karnataka as well as the broader Indian ethos," it added.
