Inspired by peacocks, Mumbai airport’s new terminal T2 integrates India’s national bird into its design in a hundred different ways. From the grand foyer to the ceilings and pillars, with peacock feather-shaped skylights, the airport stands out among glass and metal contemporaries the world over.

40,000,000  is the annual passenger capacity of GVK’s Terminal 2 in Mumbai, making it the biggest airport terminal in India. Delhi airport’s Terminal 3, which opened in 2010, has a capacity of 34 million. GVK Infra, the lead partner at Mumbai and Bangalore airports, is divesting stakes in both projects to lower debt. Internationally, it manages operations at Bali’s Denpasar airport and is working on the masterplan to build a new airport in Java.
