PALASBARI,July 1:The Adani group-run Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International (LGBI) Airport in Guwahati, will shift to its new terminal by April 2025, a senior official confirmed.
It may be mentioned here that the initial target to complete the terminal building, being developed at a total cost of over Rs 2,000 crore, was December 2024, but it got delayed by around four months due to a change in design.
“Our new terminal will be ready by April 2025. The delay was due to a change in the design to include more facilities in the building. We want to make it the most effective terminal in the country,” stated Chief Airport Officer (CAO) Utpal Baruah.
In August 2020, the Union Cabinet approved leasing the Guwahati airport to Adani Enterprises for operation, management, and development for a period of 50 years. AAl was developing the new terminal before the management was transferred to the Gujarat-based entity in October 2021.
“We have recently prepared the master plan of the terminal and shared it with all concerned. In the first phase, we are going to have a brand new integrated terminal building, almost six times bigger than the present one and comparable with any global one,” Baruah explained.
The new terminal will have a capacity of 13.1 million passengers per annum (mppa), significantly up from the current facility’s 3.4 mppa capacity.
