The expanded building in the Arrival Hall, which has been under construction for almost a year, is now fully ready. Now, this building will soon be opened to the general public.
According to the officials, This new hall was constructed to ease the traffic at the airport. However, the construction of the building had been completed in July but it had not been made available for the passengers as some electrical work is pending.
The special thing is that this newly expanded building has been integrated with the existing Arrival Hall of the airport. Separation blocks between the two have also been removed. Only one gate is proposed to be placed for arrival.

It is also decided to increase the number of boarding gates for the convenience of the passenger so that they don’t get stuck at departures and arrivals. Earlier it had five boarding gates, which included international and domestic flights. Now it has been increased to seven.
The availability of the number of budget flights has increased the number of tourists to Jaipur significantly. To meet this demand, the authorities are planning to introduce more facilities for passengers’ convenience and smooth travel. New toilet facilities will also be added.
