Hyderabad Indian Airport development projects

Hyderabad Rajiv Gandhi International Airport here is planning a major expansion plan that will see its capacity being raised from the original design of 12 million pax/year to 34 million passengers very soon.

In addition to a revamped terminal, the expansion project involves augmenting both Terminal and Airside areas. Post expansion, the airside infrastructure will be able to accommodate 93 code C aircraft stands (Boeing 737-700, A320 size aircraft). The additional aircraft stands will be in the Western Apron, catering to international operations, where there will an additional 17 contact stands and one remote stand, while the Eastern Apron, catering to Domestic Operations, will accommodate an additional 17 contact stands and four remote stands.

A new remote apron on the far eastern side that can accommodate an additional 42 remote stands has already been put into operation. To ensure safe operations and seamless baggage and passenger movement, a new tunnel is being built to minimize  time loss during the crisscross movement of Ground Service Equipment vehicles and aircraft, while four new Rapid Exit Taxiways have been added to enhance runway capacity and improve operational efficiency. These taxiways are designed to allow aircraft to taxi off the runway at relatively shorter distances and hence reduce runway occupancy time, thereby increasing runway capacity.

A new Parallel Taxiway has also been built for operational efficiency during secondary runway use. RGIA is already  India’s first and only airport with a paperless e- boarding facility for all domestic and international travellers. The e-boarding solution fully eliminates the need for boarding cards to be manually stamped. The airport is now also uses AI-enabled advanced Queue Management Solutions, which combines IoT security cameras and AI Video Analytics to monitor parameters such as peak passenger waiting time and help in monitoring social distance.
