air­port's new ter­mi­nal, the T2, will open for pas­sen­gers in Fe­bru­ary 2014. At the in­au­gu­ra­tion cer­e­mony, Prime Min­is­ter Man­mo­han Singh said that the new ter­mi­nal showed the abil­ity of the In­dian na­tion to build a world-class in­fra­struc­ture. Equipped with a ded­i­cated ex­press ac­cess road, a huge seat­ing area out­side, the world's big­gest art mu­seum and a stun­ning glass fa­cade among sev­eral other state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties, the T2 is likely to change the over­all air travel ex­pe­ri­ence to the city.

Am­ple use of day­light has also made it one of the most en­ergy-ef­fi­cient air­port ter­mi­nals in the coun­try. The de­sign of the four-storey glass build­ing is in­spired by a dancing pea­cock. It was built at a cost of Rs.9, 800 crore.
