A brand new terminal for domestic flights was inaugurated last December. Beyond its utilitarian purpose, this terminal is a masterpiece, a symphony of design and sustainability.

The rich woodwork, reminiscent of the 'Rander' region's old houses, adorns the facade, creating an ambiance that seamlessly blends tradition with modernity.
