The terminal was constructed in two phases, with the first phase covering an area of 255,645 square meters and being able to accommodate up to 25 million passengers annually. The second phase, which is still in the planning stage, is expected to handle an additional 20 million passengers per annum. One of the unique features of the airport is its biodiversity, with about 600-800 year old trees and over 180 rare, endangered, and threatened species that are part of the terminal’s ecosystem. Additionally, the terminal has over 923 kilometers of bamboo cladding that adds to its garden-like environment. The airport has been designed and developed to offer passengers an immersive experience in exploring the unique flora sourced from multiple ecological habitats in India. With over 6 lakh plants, passengers can explore a garden environment as they walk through the terminal. The plants are nourished by a fully automated irrigation system, ensuring that they thrive and maintain their lushness. Overall, the second terminal at Kempegowda International Airport is a unique and innovative addition to the airport that showcases the beauty of nature and the culture of Karnataka.
