The new 1C terminal at the domestic airport just gave the term ‘high fliers’ a new meaning. Its claim to fame? It has the city’s only airport bar, open to all passengers routed through the terminal. Even those without a first class ticket don’t have to feel like second-class citizens any longer.
Ultra bar, the chic station with a mini lounge, facing the tarmac, serves cocktails, straight drinks and mocktails. The most popular feature is beer on tap, though the staff won’t allow you more than two pints.
According to the Rituparn Sharma, general manager, Travel Food Services, the company that runs the airport’s bar and food court, the bar is always packed. He says, “There are people here at all times of the day. Of course, we keep a check on how much customers are drinking, and if anyone gets a little tipsy, we inform the aircraft staff to be prepared.”
