BLR | Bengaluru International Airport

Bangalore International Airport Limited

I bring you the latest construction pictures of the Bangalore International Airport in Bangalore, India.

Bangalore is called the Silicon Valley of India, and is teeming with high-tech software industries. The current HAL Airport is bursting at the seams and cannot accomodate the growing passenger and airline growth. Like everything else with Indian infrastructure, the Governments of the state of Karnataka and India woke up too late and finally awarded the contract to build a greenfield airport at Devanhalli on the outskirts of Bangalore.

The consortium building the new airport comprises of:

Siemens Project Ventures
Larsen & toubro
Unique Zurich Airport
Karnataka State Investment & Industrial Development Corporation
Airports Authority of India

The first phase of the airport will be operational by April 2008.

Really Great development!! But I still have some questions...How much will the airport approximately cost? And when will it be fully completed? What about the airport passenger capacity? (I counted around 30 aerogates). Will the airport be entirely open for flights by 2008?

The airport is scheduled to be fully operational on April 1, 2008, but only Phase I will open at that time. It will have one runway and one of the three sides of the terminal building. Totally, there will be 12-15 gates at opening (there is some lack of information about the exact number of gates since the plans underwent a change due to explosive growth in traffic in recent times and the revised plans have not been made public yet).

If the growth is so "explosive" why not build the whole passenger terminal complex and both runways all together?

Passenger traffic at Bangalore's existing small airport has been growing in excess of 50 % (year on year) for the past many months - domestic traffic growing by as much as 70%. It is expected to cross 7.5 Million this year - years ahead of the earlier traffic projections, when the new airport construction got started. Though it could still be a small number when you look at the top airports of the world, if you don't call that "explosive", what would be explosive?

The airport is being built and will be run by the private sector - the consortium includes Siemens, Zurich Airport and Larsen & Toubro (India's most respected engineering/construction firm). I am pretty sure they will respond quickly to market realities. However, they appear to be more conservative than the companies that are bulding the new airport in Hyderabad and upgrading the ones in Delhi and Mumbai.

Having said that, one runway will be adequate for at least the next many years, despite the explosive growth. The current airport is so badly overloaded that the focus is on opening the new airport ASAP. Hence, all effort is on building one runway and a terminal that is adequate for the needs in 2008. My expectation is that as soon as construction on Phase I ends in late 2007, they will start building Phase II, which includes terminal expansion, and perhaps the second runway as well. The terminal design is modular and hence construction of Phase II can happen without affecting operations on the existing terminal.

Is there any reason why they decided to open BIAL on April Fool's day?

Actually, there are 4 modern airports simultaneously under construction/to begin construction in India: New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad. Phase-1 of these airports will be ready by 2008-2010.

Incidentally, these 4 cities also have metros/subways under construction/to begin construction, with various phases for completion around the same time frame.

Good luck to this city! what consortium (or CON-artisia as i call them) they have here!
Siemens Project Ventures - Has never built a green field airport let alone the concept they are touting here Modular concept! They must have done really good marketing.
Unique Zurich Airport - Apart from Zurich it has no experience what so ever! Zurich is the worst airport in EU for its delays. This company is going to administer Bangalore airport.....
Larsen & toubro - Looks like good contractor may be doesn't know modern construction!
Karnataka State Investment & Industrial Development Corporation - The Mannequin of the group
Airports Authority of India - Other Mannequin of the group with some CNS/ATM role
KMP (Architects) - what were they thinking when designing this airport a warehouse ! may be they should go around the world and find out!
