The existing domestic terminal at Vadodara Airport, named after the Maharaja of Baroda State, is distinct from other airports due to its mix of Gujarati and architectural styles complete with domes on the roof. The terminal is small and cannot handle large numbers of passengers. The old terminal covers 4,519 square metres and can handle 250 passengers. [3]

To enhance the capacity of the airport as well as to launch international services, it was decided to construct a new Integrated Terminal Building. An international architectural design competition was held to invite designs for the new terminal. Eventually, a design submitted by United States-based consortium Gensler, Frederic Schwartz Architects and Creative Group from India won the competition and the contract to design the new terminal was awarded to them.[4]

The foundation stone for the new terminal was laid on 26 February 2009. Construction work started in May 2011 and completed by August 2016.[5] The new terminal has an area of 18,120 sq. meters with the ability to handle 700 passengers (500 domestic and 200 international) per hour. It has 18 check in counters.[6] The AAI has recently constructed a night parking facility at the airport which can park about nine Airbus A320 or Boeing 737-800 aircraft thus reducing the burden at Mumbai Airport and Ahmedabad airport, proving economical for airlines.

The new integrated terminal building was inaugurated by Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi 22 October 2016.[7] The new terminal constructed at the cost of Rs. 160 Crores is also the second green airport of India after Cochin International Airport. The new Terminal area also houses a big picturesque garden wherein marvelous art works and sculptures by the city artists are installed (Vadodara is known for its culture, art and education and is the Cultural Capital of Gujarat). The new International terminal building holds a world record - having the longest single sheet rooftop measuring 164.2 meters.

Currently, the airport does not handle cargo.

Vadodara Airport has topped in the country and bagged the Swachh Bharat Award 2019 for the cleanest and safest airport in the category of airports having annual passenger handling capacity of 1.5 million.[1]
