It will have a unique design, with a curved roof that gives off the appearance that it’s floating across 18 steel arches. It can be seen from 1.5km away.

The new terminal will be home to 65 aircraft gates, with eight of them reserved for Airbus A380 aircrafts, and 3,500 square metres of duty-free zones.

There will be massive parking facilities created for the terminal. The short-term covered parking is expected to hold 3,400 cars while the long-term parking is expected to have 1,500 car spots.
