With a 2500-meter-long runway, the airport will be suitable for operation of AirBus 320 type of aircraft. The terminal building will have six check-in counters and two arrival belts with peak hour handling capacity of 200 passengers.

With environment-friendly architectural design and state-of-the-art passenger facilities, the terminal building will be a composite structure inspired by the Shikhars of the Baidyanath Temple. The interiors will depict local tribal arts, handicrafts, and pictures of local tourist destinations highlighting the culture of the region.
