The Airports Council International (ACI), in its World Airport Traffic Report has ranked Hyderabad international airport as the second fastest growing airport in India and third fastest in the World for the category of handling more than 15 million passengers per year.
The GMR Hyderabad International Airport is all set to give its passengers a wowing experience.
Since its inception, GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL) has been at the forefront of adopting energy efficiency practices which has brought in many accolades from various platforms. In the last three years, energy efficiency measures taken at GHIAL have led to a substantial energy saving of around 7.6 MU, while leading to a rapid decline in the Green House Gaseous (GHG) emissions at the airport.
The fastest-growing Airport in India catering to 21 million passengers in FY19, Hyderabad International Airport has experienced significant growth for the past four years. With robust growth in passenger traffic, with a four years Compound Annual Growth Rate of around 20% from FY 15 to FY 19, RGIA is embarking on a large scale expansion project.
The expansion project will increase RGIA’s annual passenger handling capacity beyond 34 million. The first phase of this mammoth project will take around three years to complete. Our vision is to build fully tech-enabled “Smart Airport”. To achieve this, we are introducing an array of technologies like the paperless travel using biometric and face recognition technology, advanced self-check-in kiosks, baggage-drop service, security check lanes with Auto Tray Retrieval System (ATRS) among others.
GHIAL is embarking on this expansion journey towards the Airport of the future to enhance the passenger experience.
GMR Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Hyderabad has become the first in the country to successfully introduce Face Recognition (FR) technology enabling passengers to breeze through the express entrance into the terminal.
