The new terminal at Kolkata airport is massive

It took me 8 minutes to leisurely walk from one end to the other end in the domestic departure area.

Multiple security check boots. Bar checked. Fountain drinking water checked. Lots of natural light checked. Comfortable seating checked. Snack bars Yes. Authentic India chai- No!

The security hold area offers a great view of the tarmac, planes taking off.

Work still on going

I have seen this in movies only before

I was hoping see a 787 Dreamliner parked but only got a quick glimpse of one taking off.

The restrooms in BIAL smells better though.

The flight information display switched to Bengali (I believe) for a considerable length of time which is annoying.

Overall I really like it.
