This Dissertation aims to provide a clear vision to its reader about the importance of a new airport with the growing air traffic and cargo business in the current socio-economic situation of Bangladesh. It also studies the roles and functions of an airport, understands the working system of the whole aviation industry, defines the architecture of terminal in chronological order and tries to examine the impact that it will cause on the urban fabric of the surrounding areas. For the last 10 years air traffic has increased dramatically in Bangladesh, cargo transportation has also escalated. External trade has grown from $1 billion to $35 billion, and Shahjalal International Airport presently is not equipped to handle the massive flow of such trade and passengers. It severely lacks facilities, efficient handling and space to accommodate cargo and also the life span of this airport is ending just after 25 more years. Therefore, government of Bangladesh has decided to build a modern international airport connecting east with west; and a point for passenger distribution throughout the world which will become a catalyst for economic growth of the country. And Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib International airport (BSMIA) has been proposed by the civil aviation authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) to fulfil the demand.
