New Hyderabad Airport – 8 days to D-day

Some great night pictures of the new Hyderabad Airport at Shamshabad from their website. Heck, the airport even has a theme song composed by none other than AR Rahman and lyrics by Prasoon Joshi (of Rang De Basanti fame).

    Passengers should leave their homes min 4hours prior to their flight time, since Taiwan and H.K airports too are far away from city area.
    Best of luck to over-come the initial obstacles and difficulties of ridings on the road to airport, have a nice journey enshallah….

    My serious and sincere suggestion is that a one responsible person should be allowed inside to help & guide their families for check-in baggage while departing so that they will not feel worry or panic.

    Yikes! It seems that the splogs love you. Four pingbacks already!

    As for that airport, those pictures look too good to be true. Are you sure that is Hyderabad? In a year’s time, the walls of that airport are going to be smeared with red colour by our ubiquitous spitters. Heh.

    @Khaja, thanks.

    @Mohammad Tariq, hope the govt bucks up and gets the approach road to the airport ready. So that we dont have to spend so much time commuting to and from the airport.

    @Krishna, the pings are probably the reason for the traffic to this blog. As for the pics, i got it from the airport website. Hope GMR and the AP govt is not bluffing 😉 Anyway, it opens in a few more days. Take a trip down if possible and let us know how it really looks. As for the spitters, they will get a kick up their backside. Hopefully.

    @Akhil, yup GMR seems to have done a terrific job. Lets wait and see how they operate it.
