It's here.

After a great deal of planning, the Airports Authority of India has opened the first phase of its upgraded domestic terminal IB at Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.

It's hip, spacious and, most importantly, better organised than ever before. At least that's the plan.

Why terminal IB? Because it caters to 7 million passengers and over 500 air traffic movements. The new terminal sits on 1,575 square metres.

It boasts 38 check-in counters and a security hold of 1,651 square metres. The best part is, this is just an interim solution.

Going by current levels of air traffic, Mumbai airport is more than capable of staying on top of things for the next couple of years.
