The airport consists of two passenger terminals: Terminal 1 at Stacruz for domestic flights, and Terminal 2 at Sahar for both international and domestic flights. While both terminals used the same airside facilities, they physically separated on the cityside; requiring a 15-20min drive between them. The airport has two intersecting runways. But runways are upgraded to Code F, which means they can accommodate larger aircrafts. The airport presents an astonishing architecture and beautiful interior design, which fascinates every passengers who arrives at the airport; helping them relax, while staring at the airport’s luxurious interior design.
