New Terminal At Kolkata Airport To Be Ready Soon

After rolling out a hi-tech Terminal 3 in Delhi airport, Indian authorities are renovating the NSC Bose International Airport in Kolkata.

India is blossoming as a tourism hub and it seems authorities in the country are making sure that travellers who take flights to India are not left unimpressed!

India’s Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh said on Monday that the wok for new terminal building at the airport will be commissioned "well within four months." The new terminal is said to have a passenger handling capacity of four million, which is considerably higher of what it is now.

As mentioned earlier, India remains a hot holiday destination and the availability of better services and higher standards of quality at country airports is only going to enhance tourism, something mentioned by Indian minister. He believes that a modernised Kolkata Airport is going to promote tourism and create opportunities for employment.

Kolkata Airport acts a gateway for leisure and business tourists who look for connections for South-East Asia destinations. With developed air connectivity, travellers will surely have more choices and they will be better equipped to chalk out a travel schedule that will allow them to net tickets on cheap flights to India and for onward tours. 

As of now, the airport is the fifth busiest in India in terms of overall passenger traffic. NSC Bose International Airport serves numerous domestic, regional and international airlines, such as Jet Airways, Emirates and Air India.
