Chennai: Ahead of its inauguration by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the new Phase-1 integrated terminal at Chennai International airport was named after late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister CN Annadurai.

According to Civil Aviation Ministry, the new addition to Chennai airport is spread across 2.20 lakh sq metres and has the capacity to handle nearly 35 million passengers per year.

Meanwhile, airport officials said that once the Phase-2 works are completed, it will be named after former Chief Minister Kamaraj.

This came after the name boards were removed as the buildings were razed for renovation purposes.

The foundation stone for the expansion of the international airport was laid by the Prime Minister in 2018.
