The Belagavi Terminal Building will cover an area of 20,000 square meters, comprising 16,400 square meters for the New Terminal Building and an additional 3,600 square meters for the Conversion of the Existing Terminal into Arrivals.

Once the structural plan has been submitted and approved, the actual construction work for the terminal is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2024. The entire project is anticipated to take approximately 36 months to reach completion.

Belagavi Terminal Building is 20,000 Sqm (16,400 Sqm for the New Terminal Building + 3600 Sqm for the Conversion of the Existing Terminal into Arrivals).
