Mumbai offers a new experience in airports

Quote:
Passengers travelling eastwards from Budapest’s Liszt Ferenc Airport have an opportunity to see Mumbai’s new Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, now surely one of the world’s most beautiful and astonishing airports.

Turkish Airlines, Qatar Airways, KLM, Lufthansa and British Airways all touch down in Budapest and Mumbai, where then-Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh inaugurated the state-of-the-art Terminal 2, or T2, on 10 January this year. It opened for international operations on 12 February.

The terminal takes its design inspiration from the feathers of the majestic peacock, India’s national bird, and the lotus, the national flower.

The result is awe-inspiring, and that is even if you don’t consider the Jaya He art exhibit, said to be the world’s largest public art programme located in an airport, with 6,000 pieces of Indian art from all over the country. The majority originates from the 8th to the 19th centuries, with some 100 commissioned contemporary works, including by renowned Indian artists.

The exhibits are displayed on 5.5-metre-high walls along the terminal’s corridors, moving walkways and other standalone display areas totalling 1.2 kilometres and encompassing 7,430 square metres. It has been referred to by the BBC as “India’s largest museum”.

Metal and glasswork workers, mud-wall painters, soundscapers, sculptors, wood carvers, terracotta modellers and other artists used conventional materials plus recycled metal, waste including bottle tops and scrapped electrical circuits, glazed tiles, water features and moving items.

A worthwhile option for those with a long stopover is the Pranaam GVK Guest Service. This offers a warm welcome by a uniformed attendant at the departure or arrival gates and, if needed, a chaufeurred drive by luxury car between terminals.

Pranaam offers personalised assistance through all the airline and airport processes, such as immigration, passport control, check-in and guidance to the boarding gate. VIP lanes are used. A dedicated porter will look after the luggage and a buggy will take you around the airport.

The meet-and-assist service includes use of Pranaam’s sumptuous lounge with comfortable seating, a buffet with complimentary food and drinks, kids’ corner and baby-care room, and business section with free wi-fi.

This airport (along with New Delhi's Indhira Gandhi) is a masterpiece.

Source http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...47144&page=801 AAI January Data shows BOM slowly creeping up behind DEL!

I know DEL is fully geared up to comfortably hold on to the number one position in the long run all the way to 100 Mn, but it does look like BOM does stand a small chance at being number one for a short time yet again.

DOMESTIC PAX TOTAL PAX

T2 - a review by Martin Moodie himself

Take a bow airport operator GVK. Take a bow Performa (Gate Gourmet) and Travel Food Services, who together run a brilliant common-use passenger lounge (more of that in a moment) on behalf of GVK and take a bow DFS and Flemingo for a duty free and general retail offer of a quality that you couldn’t possibly have dreamed of even five years ago in Mumbai.

Alas I didn’t get much of a chance to see the retail or (public) food & beverage offer as I spent so much time enjoying the world’s first luxury common-passenger lounge, which opened in November.

It really is impressive (look out for a feature in coming weeks). The 30,000sq ft
lounge is spread across two levels and can hold up to 440 guests at a time. Its
features include concierge services, a smoking zone, extensive (and excellent) food & beverage of course, a bar, a luxury spa, shower and relaxation areas, a library and a business centre.

Fashion designer Sandeep Khosla and architect Alfaz Miller designed the
space based on a concept by Softroom Architects, with gold and silver themes
complemented by Jali screens, chandeliers and a glass peacock installation.

The business model is very interesting indeed and is being closely monitored by companies developing terminals elsewhere (and by airlines). Essentially the common usage concept means that airlines can offer a luxurious lounge experience to their premium passengers on a ‘pay per use’ concept, meaning no upfront investments and lower operating costs for airlines.

At the time of the opening, GVK Founder, Chairman and Managing Director Dr. GVK Reddy said: “The lounge reflects a kaleidoscopic vision of the dreams of India and the pulse of Mumbai, and is themed to give the travellers a blend of world-class local ambiences at the airport.”

Accompanied by Sunil Kapur (who with trademark generosity of spirit came to the airport to meet me after midnight just a day after what was must have been a truly exhausting ‘big fat Indian wedding’) and Performa Managing Director Beat Ehlers, I toured the three sections of the lounge.

The first-class section sits on the second level and provides à la carte dining, individual spa treatments and multi-lingual service staff. In premium class travellers have access to an exclusive lounge environment and 170 seats, as well as a buffet area equipped with a juice bar and whisky lounge. The business-class section seats 270 and has access to a variety of international dishes in the buffet area.

I can testify to the quality of the food and wine offer. Over a chilled flute of Veuve Clicquot and a couple of exquisite light bites delivered to us personally by the Chef, I perused the menus and discussed the concept with Sunil and Beat. The First Class wine list was… well, first class, ranging from Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc (one of six top whites) to the outstanding Marchesi Antinori Chianta Classico Riserva.

Then there’s the cuisine: a classic Khandvi platter with more twists than Elvis Presley in his prime; pan fried Kerala Queen scallops (pictured above); I can still taste the subtle spice of the coconut, tomato and coriander flavours); Lamb Purdah Biryani and much, much more. It’s the only airport lounge in the world with a Tandoori oven and it’s got much more to offer besides.

“It’s been a challenge to get everything right but it is good – now we want to be great
,” Sunil told me. “We want to be known as one of the great airport lounges. From ambience to design, from service to food to hygiene… we’ve changed the rules of the [airport lounge] game.”

They certainly have. Look out for my feature, coming soon, where I’ll explore this fascinating concept further – and also take a look at T2′s astonishing, magnificent (I promise you the superlatives are justified) Art Wall programme (below), which is displayed on an 18 meter high wall that runs through the terminal for three kilometres.

At the time the programme was unveiled, curator curator Rajeev Sethi told The Wall Street Journal India, “Art must be brought into the public domain. The airport will receive far more visitors in one year than all the galleries and museums across India combined receive in even five years.”

Now isn’t that some vision? I can’t wait to explore the subject matter further (I am interviewing Karthi Gajendran, President Projects, who played a key role in conceptualising and executing the Art Wall program).

It’s stunning. A giant masterpiece. My only regret was that my experience of it was so cursory. But then how can you resist the GVK Lounge’s pan-fried Kerala scallops and an ice-cold glass of Veuve Clicquot? Only my own Bahamian Rhapsody could have drawn me away.
