Bengaluru, Karnataka, Prime Minister
The Prime Minister will dedicate Terminal 2 of Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru, which was built at a cost of approximately Rs 5,000 crore. According to the PMO, the terminal will double the airport’s passenger handling capacity to 5-6 crore passengers per year, up from the current capacity of about 2.5 crore.
Terminal 2 is a tribute to Bengaluru’s Garden City, and the passenger experience is meant to be a “walk in the garden.” Passengers will pass through more than 10,000 square metres of green walls, hanging gardens, and outdoor gardens.
“The Airport has already set a precedent for sustainability by utilising 100 percent renewable energy across the campus. Terminal 2 was designed with sustainability in mind. Based on the sustainability initiatives, Terminal 2 will be the world’s largest terminal to be pre-certified platinum by the US GBC (green building council) prior to operations. The theme of ‘Naurasa’ unites all of the commissioned artworks for Terminal 2. The artworks reflect Karnataka’s heritage and culture, as well as the larger Indian ethos “The PMO stated.
