The terminal will have 4 aero-bridges, construction of apron for parking three in contact and eight remote parking stands for wide-bodied jet aircraft.

Chandigarh International Airport is coming up at 306 acres (1.24 km2) land of Jheorehri village,near Mohali, the Greater Mohali Area Development Authority is spending Rs 1,700 crore to connect this airport with Punjab.[2]

Naming the new airport

At first the Airport was to be named Mohali International Airport, since it is in the suburb of Mohali in Chandigarh. But since Chandigarh is a Union Territory, and Haryana will also have a share in the airport, the two states (Punjab and Haryana) have agreed on naming the airport as Chandigarh International Airport.[3][4]
