The Jaipur airport has only 2 departure gates but now the scheduled plan is to increase these in numbers for the convenience of everyone boarding flights from there. With a spike in passenger numbers, the traffic outside the airport gets too intense at times. These incidents cause a lot of problems for people visiting the airport either to catch a flight or drop off their loved ones. Between the rush of getting inside with all the bags, the congestion becomes an unnecessary but unavoidable issue.

3 new departure gates are coming at the Jaipur International Airport to take care of the crazy traffic. In conversation with The Times of India, a spokesperson of the airport shared some necessary information about the project of new departure gates. The departure gates of the terminal building will get 2 lanes. A total of 5 departure gates and 10 lanes will ease the experience of getting inside the terminal for the flyers.

Accessing 10 lanes will bring the chance to enjoy an enhanced journey. Among these 10 lanes, 9 will be for passengers and 1 will be dedicated for the staff and employees. The renovation project has many spectacular plans to expand the airport and build new additions for better experiences for everyone. Along with 3 new departure gates, the Jaipur International Airport will get lanes for VIPs as well.
