The new terminal building at Tiruchirappalli International Airport in Tamil Nadu is dedicated by Prime Minister Narendra today. It is outfitted with cutting-edge amenities and will improve passenger connectivity.

The new terminal building, which cost over Rs 1,100 crore to construct, was intended to highlight Tiruchirappalli’s vibrant culture. Through its dynamic exterior facade and magnificent interiors, it will display art styles ranging from Kolam art to hues of Srirangam Temple and other theme artworks showing India’s relationship to the rest of the globe. 

The Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement that the two-story new international terminal building can accommodate more than 44 lakh passengers yearly and roughly 3,500 passengers during peak hours.

The new terminal building has 60 check-in desks, 5 baggage carousels, 60 arrival immigration counters and 44 departure emigration counters for secure and easy check-in and check-out procedures. In addition, VIP lounges and 19 X-His Machines are designed to make travelling clients’ lives easier.

Remarkably, Tiruchirappalli International Airport is Tamil Nadu’s second-biggest airport in terms of foreign passenger flow, behind Chennai. The new terminal building’s architecture naturally highlights Trichy’s cultural history.

“We have done a lot of painting works, murals. A total of 100 artists were employed and we finished the artworks in 30 days,” said Rajavignesh, Creative Director for the artworks in the terminal building.
