Quicker connecting time

The design of the airport focuses on low-operating costs and seamless and fast transfer process for passengers

The airport will also have a swing aircraft stand concept, providing flexibility to airlines to operate an aircraft for both domestic and international flight from the same aerobridge without having to reposition the aircraft. This will ensure quicker aircraft turnarounds and smooth passenger transfer process
