Boasting four aero bridges and eight escalators, the terminal is engineered to handle a robust capacity of 2400 passengers concurrently, both for arrivals and departures.

Kadadi highlighted the strategic importance of this modernization effort, stating that it reflects a commitment to providing state-of-the-art facilities for passengers.
