The expansion will offer more convenience to both departing and arriving passengers, with a more spacious check-in area, more check-in counters and better organised pick-up and drop-off points.
The south section, which has been serving as the domestic terminal, will be closed for renovation.
The drop-off points for departures will be on the second floor of the platform while the pick-up point for arrivals will be on the first floor. Personal vehicles can park in the five-storeyed parking building in front of the domestic terminal.
The security screening for luggage and belongings has been upgraded using a Terminal Screening system while the conventional X-Ray machine as well as Walk Through Metal Detector have been installed at the newly opened section.
