Considering the importance of air connectivity to the capital city of Arunachal Pradesh, AAI has undertaken the work of constructing a Greenfield Airport at Hollongi, 15 Kms from Itanagar.

With an estimated cost of Rs.650 cr the project includes the development work i.e. construction of airport pavements, air side work, terminal Building and city side works.

With an area of 4100 sqm, the new domestic terminal building of the Airport at Hollongi, Arunachal Pradesh will be able to handle 200 passengers during peak hours. Equipped with eight check-in counters, the terminal building will have all modern passenger facilities.

The terminal will be an energy efficient building provisioned with Rain Water Harvesting system and sustainable landscape. The development work also includes construction of ATC Tower cum Technical Block, Fire station, Medical Centre and other ancillary works.

The building`s envelope is influenced by the surrounding landscapes. Moving away from the strict geometry of straight lines and angles, the roof form is organic and establishes instant connection with the viewer.

The building interior is designed to emanate a sense of calm to the passengers. This is achieved by providing free-flowing spaces, hidden service core and a glass façade that links the eye to the panoramic scenic beauty of the Himalayan Foothills.

At present, Soil testing and field survey works are completed and site clearing work is in progress at the Airport at Hollongi. Substructure works have already been completed and superstructure fabrication is under progress. The tentative date for completion of the project is November, 2022.

Itanagar, the capital of Arunachal Pradesh is situated at the foothills of Himalayas. Presently, no airport exists in vicinity of Itanagar, the closest one being Lilabari Airport which is at a distance of 80km in the state of Assam and takes around three hours to reach by road. 

An airport to connect the capital city is a much needed aspiration of the local community which will also act as a primary gateway to the state of Arunachal Pradesh.
