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.
