The architectural design, led by Pascal and Watson, pays homage to the rich culture and heritage of Uttar Pradesh, adding a touch of elegance to the airport’s ambiance.

Moreover, the terminal offers a range of modern amenities, including a multi-story parking facility accommodating 1,500 vehicles and extensive stormwater drainage systems alongside the runway. Operated by Lucknow International Airport Limited (LIAL), the airport caters to diverse passenger needs with services such as self-check-in kiosks, prayer rooms, duty-free shops, and more.

The completion of Lucknow’s new airport terminal not only signifies a milestone in infrastructure development but also underscores the city’s commitment to enhancing its hospitality standards.
