In November last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the terminal 2, which was built based on a theme that showcases the ethos of Bengaluru as the garden city of India. The estimated cost of constructing the first phase of terminal 2 is reportedly ₹13,000 crore, and it has a built-up area of roughly 2.5 lakh square metres. This new terminal is expected to serve 25 million passengers a year. Another 4.41 lakh square metres will be added to the terminal during the second phase.
