Modi lays foundation stone for new terminal building at Tiruchirappalli Airport

In a push for ‘Sabka Vikas’ south of the Vindhyas, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday inaugurated and laid the foundation stone for a bouquet of development projects worth over INR 20,000 crore in Tiruchirappalli.
PM Modi later proceeded to inaugurate the new terminal building at the Trichy airport.

The new terminal building has been developed at a cost of more than INR 1,100 crore. The two-level new international terminal has the capacity to serve more than 44 lakh passengers annually and about 3,500 during peak hours, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) informed earlier through an official release.

“The new terminal hosts state-of-the-art amenities and features for passenger convenience,” read the PMO statement.

Tiruchirappalli International Airport is the second-largest airport in terms of international passenger traffic after Chennai in Tamil Nadu.

The new terminal building contains 60 check-in counters, 5 baggage carousels, 60 arrival immigration counters, and 44 departure emigration counters. (Source: ANI)
