Bengaluru/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated terminal 2 of Kempegowda International Airport at Bengaluru on Friday.

The Prime Minister also interacted with airport authorities where he was briefed on the model of the terminal 2 building.

PM Modi also inspected the facilities at the experience centre and took a walkthrough of Terminal 2 of the Kempegowda International Airport.

The Prime Minister also witnessed a short film about terminal 2.

In a tweet, he wrote: “Terminal 2 of the Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru will add capacity and further convenience. It is a part of our efforts aimed at providing top class infrastructure to our urban centres. The Terminal is beautiful and passenger friendly! Glad to have inaugurated it.”

Terminal 2 of Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru is built at a cost of around Rs. 5000 crores.

The terminal will double the passenger handling capacity of the airport to 5-6 crore passengers per annum, from the current capacity of about 2.5 crores.

Terminal 2 is designed as a tribute to the Garden city of Bengaluru and the passenger experience is meant to be a “walk in the garden”.

Passengers will travel through 10,000+ square metres of green walls, hanging gardens and outdoor gardens.

The airport has already established a benchmark in sustainability with 100% usage of renewable energy across the campus.

Terminal 2 has been created with sustainability principles woven into the design. Based on the sustainability initiatives, 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 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.
