    No international operations will take place from T2. According to DIAL, T2 is capable of eventually handling as many as 15 million passengers annually.

    The revamped T2 is crucial to DIAL's Master Plan 2016. Under this Master Plan, T2 will help take the load off the growing traffic on T1. In the meantime, Terminal 1 will be expanded and integrated (T1D and T1C will be merged). Once the expansion of T1 is complete, T2 will be demolished to make way for a swanky new T4.

    T3 and T2 would cater to the growing traffic in the next three to four years by which time T1 expansion project would be completed. DIAL also plans to build a fourth runway by 2021.
