Construction of Gautam Buddha International airport in Lumbini has already begun. PM Koirala inaugurated the the project earlier this year.It is being constructed 22km form Buddha's birthplace in Siddarthanagar ( formely known as Bhairahawa) Lumbini.This should add huge convenience to Buddhist pilgrims who want to visit Lumbini directly and bypass KTM. Actually this is an upgrade but new runway and international terminal is being constructed and the old runway will be used as taxiway. Here are some renderings of the new airport and the construction pictures. Please feel free to add any information

Here’s how Bhairahawa is transforming into a modern city

This area is going through some major transformation. With new airport the expressway under construction and Lumbini near by prosperity is imminent in this region.


At the border city of Bhairahawa, in Nepal’s Terai, a slew of development activities is taking place. Once completed, these upgradation to existing infrastructures – along with the introduction of new ones – will transform Bhairahawa into a modern city fitted with enviable amenities. Wide, 6-lane roads with greenery at either side, a new stadium, luxury hotels and an international airport will soon change the landscape of the border city. - See more at:
