Arunachal Pradesh is poised to feature on country’s aviation map with a greenfield airport at Hollongi, 15 kilometres from Itanagar. With estimated cost of 650 crore rupees, the project includes the development work, construction of airport pavements, air side work, terminal Building and city side works.
The new domestic airport, with an area of 4,100 square metres, the Hollongi Airport will be able to handle 200 passengers during peak hours. Equipped with eight check-in counters, the terminal building will have all modern passenger facilities.
The terminal will be an energy efficient building provisioned with Rain Water Harvesting system and sustainable landscape.
The building interior is designed to emanate a sense of calm to the passengers. This is achieved by providing free-flowing spaces, hidden service core and a glass façade that links the eye to the panoramic scenic beauty of the Himalayan Foothills. The tentative date for completion of the project is November, 2022.
