Travelers experience a monolithic but warm, open and light-filled check-in hall, featuring 188 check-in counters. All these are sheltered underneath the 11-acre long-span roof, supported by an array of 30 mushrooming multi-story mega-columns. Small disks of colorful glass recessed within the canopy’s coffers illuminate the hall below with light, whose symposium of colors makes reference to The Peacock, India’s national bird and the inspiration for the airport. After check-in, 60 immigration counters, 124 security check positions, 41 travellators, 47 escalators & 73 elevators efficiently & swiftly process passengers for boarding. The airport houses India's largest art museum called 'Jaya He' which has over 6500 artifacts and artworks of several artists.
