Terminal 3 nears completion

The structure of the New International Terminal (Terminal 3) at the Trivandrum International Airport is almost complete. Work on the 1st Phase is over and the steel-work of the 2nd Phase is on.

The state-of-the-art terminal building, designed by the world-famous firm of W.S. Atkins, will be commissioned by April 2009. At 350,000 Sq.ft., the giant terminal will be the most modern in Kerala and one of the most advanced designs in India.

It will be a refreshing change from the staid architecture found elsewhere in Kerala's airports. Kozhikode's new terminal has made a start at a new design style, but T3 will be the first real step change with its all-steel-and-glass design which follows the trend set by iconic airports like Hong Kong's Chep Lap Kok.


  1. One instance where the real structure looks sexier than the perspective! Cant wait to see it in real..

    With the Phase II complete the TIA T3 is going to be bigger than the new terminal in Bangalore, at least in the size. Hope the services and interiors will also match the BIAL and RGIA, Hyderabad.

  2. I saw the skeleton of this structure some weeks back..Happy to see the progress..


Thanks for your comment, I will take a look at it and put it up at the earliest.
