The existing terminal has been in service for over 30 years in tandem. The new T2 is spread across an area of more than 200,000 square feet with extensive options for food and beverage outlets. Most of the international arrivals and departures will be carried out from this all-new addition to CSIA. It is known whether domestic services will be affected, however, popular global service providers like Indigo airline is expected to operate its flights soon.
T2 is expected to have posted a cost of almost 5500 crore INR for its establishment. This has been a major achievement for Indian aviation as this terminal at the airport is designed on the basis on world standards and has a state-of-the-art appearance. It has four levels and is equipped with ultramodern amenities as is expected from a global hub. It has finally allowed this airport to enrol itself in the league of other major hubs like Delhi, Bangalore and Hyderabad, all of which have commissioned new buildings in the last few years.
Indians will get to witness this new structure only if they are planning to take an international flight from Mumbai. Travellers can book an Indigo flight ticket to some global destination to check out the new terminal. However, make sure that you reach in time to avoid getting delayed. The newer building is also equipped with impressive security measures to keep up with the tide of times.
