CCU | Kolkata Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport

Kolkata's airport is currently being upgraded in light of the booming air traffic in the Indian aviation. The modernization and expansion of the NSCB airport will be done by May 2011 and this will include the construction of a new terminal, extension of the second runway, taxiways amongst others.


Designed by RMJM, the new terminal will be able to handle 20 million passengers/annum which would be sufficient till 2015. Work has started on it and the terminal should open by May 2011.

Click on the renders to view large



The new terminal building will have an area of around 180,000 sq metres. 104 check-in counters, 44 immigration counters, 25 security gates, five conveyor belts and 15 aerobridges will be the other features of the airport post development.



Deep piling work for the integrated passenger terminal had begun in Nov 2008



The consultants for the modernization of this airport is a consortium of Indian firms partnering with Hong Kong’s RMJM and a Paris-based firm ADPI.






Work on nine domestic bays, three cargo bays and 11 additional parking bays has already started



Inside the new terminal:

^ The terminals landscaping and design revolves around an abstract reference to the writing of Rabindranath Tagore of Bengal. The graphic nature of his writing is visible as large scale patterns etched on to the underside of the main roof as well as landscaped across the forecourt ground.

Thanks for this...It's got me more interested in the goings on at the Kolkata Airport now. Love that floor roof exploded view and the cross sectional renderings...

The ATC looks cool. Wish there was a clearer render of that.

Probably the best planned airport in India if not the world. Being the grand entry to the cosmopolitan capital of India, this airport truly keeps up with the ideal theme and decor of Kolkata and Bengali high culture.
