Bengaluru International Airport

Bengaluru International Airport

Bengaluru International Airport is a international airport serving the city of Bengaluru (Bangalore), Karnataka, India. It replaced the old HAL Bangalore International Airport. Construction of the airport began in July 2005, after a decade long postponement. It was expected to be inaugurated on 30 March 2008 but due to delays in air traffic control (ATC) services, it started its operations on the night of 23 May 2008, just before midnight. Bangalore is the fourth-busiest airport in India, after Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai.

Bengaluru International Airport Limited (BIAL), the owner and operator of the new Bengaluru International Airport, is a public limited company, registered under the Indian Companies Act. A private-public venture, the project realized so far and the upcoming phases are being built and will be operated by the company for the next 30 years with an option to continue for another 30 years.

The new Bengaluru airport was originally planned to accommodate 3.5 million passengers a year, but this was redesigned to handle 12 million passengers per year. The redesign resulted in an increase in the size of the terminal, number of aircraft stands, new taxiway layouts and supporting infrastructure.

In 2008, Benguluru International Airport was the fourth Most Delayed Airport in the World according to FlightStats sampling of the airport's flights, with only 60.16% on time arrivals.
