1. A column free passengers' hall that amplifies the sense of spaciousness, and is deliberately designed with gentle use of diversified Islamic architectural and decorative notions;
2. Accommodating an increasing number of passengers; and
3. The departure hall was designed to harmonize with an overall remodeling of the departure terminal, and the aims at a reconnection with zhr airport's scattered buildings.
