Renowned industrialist Anand Mahindra expressed admiration for the recently unveiled terminal at Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport in Lucknow. In a social media post, Mahindra commended the city for its impressive architecture and the enhanced reputation for traditional hospitality. 

The video shared by Mahindra showcased the state-of-the-art features of the new terminal, including advanced screens, a robust security system and modern kiosks.

The construction of the new passenger terminal (T3) was announced in 2018 by the then Minister of Civil Aviation, Suresh Prabhu. Covering an extensive land area of 1,11,367 square meters, the terminal includes a spacious basement and a corridor connecting T2 and 13 terminals. It is designed to accommodate over 13 million passengers annually, with an estimated construction cost of ₹1,383 crore.

Featuring 75 check-in counters, 18 check-in kiosks, 30 lifts, and five escalators, the new terminal reflects the rich culture and heritage of Uttar Pradesh in its design and interiors, led by Pascal and Watson. Additional facilities, such as a multi-storey parking space for 1,500 vehicles and over 5 km of stormwater drainages alongside the runway, contribute to the airport’s modern amenities.

Lucknow International Airport Limited (LIAL), in collaboration with the Adani Group, has leased the airport for 50 years. As part of this agreement, LIAL pays a per-passenger fee (PPF) to the Airports Authority of India (AAI) for each domestic and international passenger using the airport. The partnership aims to enhance the overall travel experience, offering services like self-check-in kiosks, prayer rooms, duty-free shops, and more.
