No locker room facilities Security at the power house and A/C departments are poor Surrounding area of these also not satisfactory Wide area of airport is using as parking area. It may be a wastage of land. The use of parking buildings may save space for the parking and other space can use for other commercial activities. So more revenue can be earn without losing the income from carparking That may also help in expansion to any number without the need of additional area Conveyer belt can use for advertisements Lack of entertainment facilities inside the boarding wait area Information related to and from airport buses and their timing (destinations) Medical care can be implemented Free use of Wi-Fi Internet facility can be implemented The implementation of fare taxi rate will increase the use of the airport taxies No money exchange facility at the airport
