GMR Hyderabad International Airport Limited
Located 22 km south of downtown, Hyderabad-Rajiv Gandhi International Airport is the sixth busiest airport in India. The airport is named after former Prime Minister of India, Rajiv Gandhi. It replaced the former international airport of the city, Begumpet Airport. The airport was newly constructed in 2008 and currently handles more than 7.6 million passengers annually.
RGIA, though new, already has a number of feathers in its cap. From being rated the No. 1 airport in the world (in the 5-15 million passenger category), to being ranked 5th worldwide (in the Airport Service Quality (ASQ) annual survey by the Airports Council International (ACI)), to being the first airport with the prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design New Construction (LEED NC) silver-rated certification by the US Green Building Council, an A380-compatible runway, to name a few. The RGIA is the first in Asia and one of the only two airports in the world to have achieved green status so far.
