Arun Bansal stated, “We are actively developing this plan. The current capacity of T1 and T2 terminals is approximately one crore passengers per annum. With our expansion efforts, including larger security hold areas.”
“We aim to increase the capacity to 1.6 crore passengers. This year alone, we anticipate crossing 1.3 crore passengers. Consequently, there is a clear requirement for a third terminal, which is currently under development,” added Mr. Bansal.
Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport (SVPIA) currently operates with one runway. Comparatively, the Adani Group-run Mumbai Airport handles 4.5 crore passengers annually with a single runway (as it has cross runways, only one can be used at a time).

When asked about specific details such as the capacity and location of T3, Bansal mentioned, “We are in the initial planning stages, and we will share further information in due course.”
