Planned international airport

In keeping with the rapid pace of industrialization taking place in Orissa, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) has recently announced a plan for the construction of a new integrated international airport complex at Bhubaneswar by 2010. AAI will invest over US $50 million (Rs. 2.5 billion).

The state government of Orissa has provided 70 acres (280,000 m) for the expansion of the runway to 10,500 ft (3,200 m), to handle Boeing 747 aircraft. The runway extension is expected to be commissioned in September 2006. The new terminal building will follow a modular design, with glass glazing, aerobridges with glass walls, and an inline baggage x-ray. The expansion also includes building a parallel taxi track for the airport and enhancing cargo handling facilities that could handle up to 30 aircraft per hour. A commercial complex for multiplex, shopping complex, hotel and other commercial establishments under the public-private partnership (PPP) near the airport, to support 500 passengers at a time.

AAI will also set up a second major airport in the western region of Orissa, at Jharsuguda.
