Recently, the expansion and revamping of the Kolhapur Airport was completed. The Indian Business Tycoon, Anand Mahindra, took to his social media and lauded the architecture of the airport. He shared a couple of stunning pictures of the airport and appreciated its unique and local style. Scroll on to see pictures!

Anand Mahindra frequently shares news and updates regarding various infrastructure projects that are going on in the country. He recently reshared some pictures of the newly revamped Kolhapur Airport on X (formerly known as Twitter).
Not just another assembly-line airport design based on steel, glass and chrome.
But one that creates a unique identity based on local history & architecture.

Officially known as Chhatrapati Rajaram Maharaj Airport or the CRMA, it is a domestic airport. While resharing the pictures, Anand Mahindra lauded its unique architecture that pays tribute to the local history.
He went on to say that he was happy to see an airport that has a unique architecture. He said that it was refreshing to see an airport that did not have a glass and steel design that made it seem as if all airports were churned out in an assembly line.
Netizens Stunned By The Amazing Pictures Of The Airport
Look elegant and beautiful at first glance.
Look too weak to withstand extreme weather. Steel, glass and Chrome don’t have durability for such structures.
Strength plays a vital role in the safety of commuters. Hope it passes the real test of extreme weather.
