Rajiv Gandhi Airport
Address: Shamshabad, Hyderabad, Telangana 500409, India
Hyderabad Rajiv Gandhi International Airport is located in the south of the country and also in relation to the city of Hyderabad. It has grown a lot in recent years and they are therefore working on expanding considerably in the future with an extra large terminal and also 1-2 runways in order to eventually grow to 60-80 million passengers per year. It is far from that yet. There is now 1 terminal of which there is an international Hyderabad departures part and for the domestic HYD departures. You end up in the same departures area to get to the gates.
The airport has 1 main runway where all Hyderabad airport departures take place. The former taxiway has been transformed into a reserve runway. In the future there should therefore also be 1 or 2 runways. The airport is widely used by the local airlines that mainly operate domestic flights. Think of Alliance Air, Spicejet, TruJet and Indigo. Of course Air India and AirAsia often fly here too. Like many other airports in India, there are limited but the same routes internationally. To Europe it is to London with British Airways and more in the Asia region is Hong Kong with Cathay Pacific, Kuala Lumpur with Malaysia Airlines, Dubai, Kuwait, Muscat, Bangkok with Thai Airways, Colombo, Doha and Dubai with Emirates. In total, 21,651,878 passengers used the airport last year. That were 183,450 HYD departures and arrivals.
