The airport's 6500 square meter terminal building will be able to accommodate roughly 10 lakh passengers a year. Many sustainable features, including an insulated roofing system, LED lighting, rainwater harvesting, fountain-filled landscaping, a water treatment plant, a sewage treatment plant, a solar power plant, and many more, have been installed in the terminal building of Ayodhya Airport in order to achieve GRIHA 5-star ratings.
