The BIAL – Bangalore International Airport will be open for business from the 23rd of may 2008. The airport promises to be a great place with lots of facilities. BMTC will run 600 + volvo buses daily from various corners of Bangalore. The buses run with a frequency of 15 minutes, which is great and set prices will ensure you wont have trouble from Bangalore’s infamous autorickshaws and taxis. The other great initiative is the taxis that will be chartered out of the airport on set price.
The revolt to the new airport being established is plenty and the fact that its 40 kms away from the city makes travel to the airport an overhead for short haul flights. Take a look at the guide for travelling to the airport
and also the transportation map of the pick up points, route and the proposed time for travel.
The jewel in the crown could have been booking for transports on these buses so that there aren’t any seating hassles, but hopefully they will get to it once the airport is fully operational. Best of luck BIAL.
