Terminals

The existing domestic terminal at Vadodara Airport is distinct from other airports due to its mix of Gujarati and Islamic architectural styles complete with domes on the roof. The terminal is small and cannot handle large numbers of passengers.

To enhance the capacity of the airport as well as to launch international services, it was decided to construct a new Integrated Terminal Building. An international architectural design competition was held to invite designs for the new terminal. Eventually, a design submitted by US-based consortium Gensler, Frederic Schwartz Architects and Creative Group from India won the competition and the contract to design the new terminal was awarded to them.[1]

The foundation stone for the new terminal was laid on 26 February 2009. This terminal is expected to be completed by the end of year 2010.[2] The new terminal will have an area of 18,120 sq. meters with the ability to handle 700 passengers (500 domestic and 200 international) per hour. It will have 18 check in counters.[3]

A cargo terminal is also planned for the future. Currently, the airport does not handle cargo.
