The structure draws inspiration from Icarus and Origami

The Guwahati airport will soon get a new and integrated terminal building. To be designed by Design Forum International, an award-winning architectural consultancy firm, it will draw inspiration from Icarus, the epitome of the human urge to fly, and traditional Japanese art of paper folding, Origami. Spread over 50 acres, the focus will be on sustainability and equip passengers with world-class facilities. The building will conform to GRIHA 4-star rating.  

The crafts village will provide travellers with an immersive and engaging experience in the retail sector. An indoor forest will be another delightful experience for travellers which they will have to navigate before reuniting with their luggage. These elements will aim to highlight the rich heritage of the region to travellers.

The new terminal will have 64 check-in counters, 20 self-check-in kiosks, eight Immigration and custom counters, six arrival carousels and 20 aircraft parking bays among other facilities.
