The 3, 437 square metre extension includes a larger arrival hall where the finishing touches are being put to new counters for car rental and currency exchange outlets.
For transiting passengers, a shuttle service runs between the terminals, with a journey time of 20 minutes approximately to Terminal 1 and 30 minutes to Terminal 3. (ANI)
