March 2015 - After the opening of the new terminal, things have changed overall right from the space, to the smooth flow of passengers to boarding, architecture, f&b outlets, travelletors, less queues, more boarding gates, almost silent, extra facilities added like sleeping dorms, child care rooms, smoking zone, ecarts to ferry senior citizens, quick check in kiosks, cleanliness has improved a lot. Areas of Improvement- More retail stores which are coming up and may take few months, trolleys should be available at all times, cleanliness needs to be maintained. More colours needs to be added to the facade as to make it look more lively.
