Guwahati: The upcoming new terminal at Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International (LGBI) Airport will be the first of its kind as it will be the “most sustainable airport terminal building” in the Northeast region, said officials of the Airports Authority of India (AAI).

At a press meet held recently, Sanjeev Jindal, regional executive director, AAI NER- Guwahati, said that the new terminal boasts several green features including sewage treatment plant, rainwater harvesting units, solid waste disposal and energy-saving lighting, among others.

The new terminal, which is already 30% complete, is likely to be the most iconic and beautiful structure of NE with 10 passenger boarding bridges, 25 lifts, 10 elevators, and two travellators, said a press release.

It will also include the first-of-its-kind craft village of local art in the departure security hold area. Inside the terminal, there will be plantation area and outside there will be iconic landscape horticulture.
