Goa Airport Guide to Goa Dabolim Airport (GOI)

Goa Airport Terminal

Since March 2014, Goa Airport has a brand new and modern terminal to attend the growing passenger traffic.

The new terminal is able to handle a peak hour capacity of 2,750 passengers/hour and, in big numbers, can handle 4 million passengers per year.


Present & future

Nevertheless, Goa Airport is near to reach this limit and is prepared for future expansion, since a big growth of air traffic to Goa is expected for the following years. That is the reason why by 2020 it is expected to be completed a new airport in Mopa.


The Glass and Steel terminal building has three levels including the ground floor and handles all flights arriving or departing from the airport.

The two old terminals serving Domestic and International Flights are unused at the moment.
