In the project, the classical splendor of the terminal  building type has been  re-created by giving the roof form over the main hall, metaphorically, the dynamism associated with 'flight'. The same dynamism is carried towards the air-side over the lounges, though in a more subtle manner, ending in the cafe. The future growth of the terminal will be towards west to the old terminal, in a linear fashion. Direct connection to the garage will be at +4.45 m. level by passenger bridges.


 The structural system of the main hall  is made up of space trusses. On the air side, a space frame ceiling system provides the flexibility required and the future growth possibility as well as being visually pleasant, functional and easy to erect.
