After a formal announcement from the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) headquarters in Delhi, flight operations are anticipated to begin from the new terminal within a week. At the new terminal, more CISF employees will be assigned to handle security. By the end of April, the new terminal should be up and running.

After four thorough inspections by senior BCAS (Bureau of Civil Aviation Security) officers from the Mumbai division and following talks with the director of Pune Airport, clearance was finally granted. 

To accommodate the additional security requirements at the new, much larger terminal will be increased from 450 CISF officials to 780. There will likely be a substantial rise in both the number of passengers and flights from the new terminal. The goal of the CISF staff expansion is to enable more efficient security and check-in procedures. The airline offices have received instructions from the airport administration to prepare for an evacuation. 

The new terminal aims to bring the airport up to international standards by providing better amenities and services in addition to resolving the urgent problem of congestion and overcrowding at the current terminal. The old terminal will stop accepting passengers when the new one opens. 

Passengers used to experience several problems at the previous terminal due to space constraints, ranging from problems getting clean water to problems with checking in. There is great potential for improving the overall travel experience and expanding the airport’s capabilities with the opening of a new terminal at Pune Airport.
