India is set to receive its second green international airport, following Chandigarh’s terminal.
Vadodara airport in Gujarat will be open to the public this August, offering flyers from the city the opportunity to fly international.
The city’s airport has been credited by Green Ratings of International Assessment (GRIHA), which is the highest national rating for eco-friendly buildings conceived by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI).
“All major work will be completed by end of this month and the airport will be fully ready by July end. PMO is directly monitoring the progress and PM may inaugurate it in August,” says N K Shukla, general manager (projects).
The airport will have 18 check-in counters and will cater to almost 700 passengers per hour. Additional features will be added in 2018.
