PM Modi inaugurates new international terminal at Vadodara airport
24 October 2016 Current Affairs GK: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has inaugurated a newly built integrated international terminal at the Vadodara airport, also known as Civil Airport Harni. 

Designed and built by the Airport Authority of India (AAI) at a cost of Rs 160 crore, the new international terminal will increase the airport's passengers handling capacity from current 450 passengers to 700 per hours.

Vadodara does not have international flights but because of this new development, it may get international flight most probably in 2017. International flights for neighbouring countries will be available from the terminal, but there will be no direct service for the US or the UK as the runway length is not enough to accommodate big aircraft. No international flight has been announced yet.

The airport has already been registered with the Limca Book of Records for longest single sheet rooftop measuring 164.2 meters.

The new terminal at the airport in Harni, on the city outskirts, is spread over 18,120 sq mt and can handle 700 passengers (domestic plus international) per hour through 18 check-in counters. The building has been designed as per the advance building management system. With advanced security systems, the terminal has energy-saving cooling mechanism, rainwater harvesting set up and super sensitive fire safety alarm.

The new terminal will help in accommodating additional flights and passengers.
