AAI To Develop Greenfield Airport

Airport Authority of India (AAI) has undertaken the work of constructing a Greenfield Airport at Hollongi, 15 km from Itanagar in Arunachal Pradesh with estimated cost of Rs. 650 crore.

The project includes development work i.e. construction of airport pavements, air side work, terminal Building and city side works. The tentative date for completion of the project is November, 2022.

AAI said that the building’s envelope is influenced by the surrounding landscapes. Moving away from the strict geometry of straight lines and angles, the roof form is organic and establishes instant connection with the viewer. The building interior is designed to emanate a sense of calm to the passengers.

Presently, no airport exists in vicinity of Itanagar, the closest one being Lilabari Airport which is at a distance of 80 km in the state of Assam and takes around three hours to reach by road.
