Finally! The New ATQ Terminal.

Wed Oct 12, 2005 12:33 pm

Punjabis have yet another reason to get drunk tonight. The new terminal at Amritsar Rajasansi International Airport (NEW NAME: Amritsar Guru Ram Das International Airport) has finally opened after nearly nine years of planning and beaureacratic delays.

The new terminal boasts:
-Full Air-conditioning
- 8 customs booths (each for departures and arrivals)
- 4 escalators, 4 elevators
- 4 baggage claim conveyor belts
- 16 Checkin Counters
- common user terminal (CUT) system with 16 check-in counters
- 1 current aerobridge with 3 others in development
- new duty free shop and snack/book/souvenier stores

My source is my cousin in India who says that the new terminal has actually been opened for 3 weeks now. His source is his good friend who works at ATQ. I know this is hearsay, so can anyone for sure confirm all of this?

Now will BA and LH consider flights to ATQ? All I need is ONE of them to start flying to ATQ, and I can die in peace.

I'm certain there'll soon be quite a few European carriers starting to ATQ soon. Given the success the AI service is supposed to have, it's not surprising for others to want to start as well.

Finding people with that kind of aspirations in life makes me feel not so alone in this world. Although I am from a very distant place you've made me interested on that airport. Good luck.
variety is the spice of life; that's what made the "old times" so good
