Yeah. Now Capt. Gopinath has money and aircrafts. But no confidence. So Air deccan and Paramount will not fly in near future. The two airlines apart from ABC, we can expect are King Fisher and Kairali. Air Kerala may fly in 2015 or 16 if they have any space to fly from the Indian skies.

There will be an additional road which will enter the airport east side premise. It will be useful for commercial development proposed in the eastern side

Air costa first flight between Vijayawada and Bangalore on October 14



Announcing that Air Costa, the first regional airline from Andhra Pradesh, would be launching its commercial operations with the first flight from Vijayawada to Bangalore on October 14, Ramesh told mediapersons on Tuesday that the company would initially start with two Embraer E-170 jets. It aims to have five E-170s and E-190s this year, 10 next year and take the total fleet size to 25 aircraft by 2018.

“Air Costa will initially connect Vijayawada, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Jaipur and Ahmedabad and spread its wings to other cities like Pune, Visakhapatnam, Goa, Madurai, Mysore and Thiruvananthapuram in a phased manner,” he said, adding the airline would be having pan-India operations by 2015 with 14 routes and reach 25 destinations in three years from then.

Bangalore Airport hotel, a project in limbo

Faced with mounting challenges to fund its expansion plans, the Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) is seeking a 131 per cent hike in landing fee for international flights and a hefty increase in User Development Fees (UDF).
But its revenue generation capacity wouldn’t have been in bad shape had its five-star airport business hotel project taken off in right earnest.

The hotel construction --said to be about 60 per cent complete -- is now on hold, and there is no hope in the horizon for the work to restart anytime soon. Here’s why: BIAL has challenged an order by the Arbitral Tribunal that directed it to pay Rs 301 crore to the consortium chosen to build the hotel. The airport promoters’ burden also includes 18 per cent interest for delayed payment, and refund of a security deposit of Rs 76.4 crore with interest at the rate of 18 per cent.

The consortium of hospitality major East India Hotels (EIH) and Larson &Tourbo had bagged the rights to design, construct, finance, commission, maintain, manage and operate the hotel. As early as November 16, 2006, BIAL and the two consortium partners had inked a Framework Agreement and a joint venture company, Bangalore Airport Hotels Limited (BAHL) was incorporated. BAHL had paid the security deposit in 2006.

The project began to falter once the Airports Authority of India (AAI) issued its No Objection Certificate (NOC) for a building height of only 30.35 meters from the ground level, way below the 45 meters specified under the original bid. After BIAL issued an in-principle approval for the hotel’s layout and plan in October 2007, it took over a year, November 14, 2008 to be precise, for AAI to issue its NOC.

The cascading effect of this NOC proved extremely tricky for the project. The original plan for a hotel with 321 keys and a total area of 273,404 sq ft had to be reworked.
The number of rooms were to be reduced.

The Consortium, which had already commenced construction, wanted certain concessions from BIAL since the terms of the Framework Agreement had changed. When talks failed, the parties agreed to go in for arbitration. The tribunal’s ruling, however, proved a shocker for BIAL. It has now challenged it in the Principal District and Sessions Judge, Devanahalli, a process that will take much time.

BIA set to become most expensive airport in country

Quote:
Bengaluru: The state government, which earlier seemed to be giving in to pressure from Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), has now snubbed the company, and refused to increase the state’s equity in BIAL. BIAL recently sought an increase in the state government’s equity in the company, citing insufficient funds for the on going terminal expansion at the international airport.

The Finance Department has suggested that BIAL use the excess land given by the state government in order to raise money for expansion rather than seeking increased equity, a source in the department said.

The shareholders of BIAL had sought additional Rs 150 crore equity participation from the state government. The Government of Karnataka has a 13 per cent share in BIAL. The state also gave has already released Rs 350 crore and gave 4000 acres of land for the project.

This land was supposed to be commercially exploited to make the airport economically viable. The GoK has cited this clause and suggested that BIAL makes use of the space available.

The state government, however, allowed BIAL to increase the user development fee charged from departing passengers to Rs 430 from Rs 231.40 for each domestic passenger and Rs 1,700 from Rs 952.30 for international passengers.

If this increase in user fee is approved by the Airports Economic Regulatory Authority, it will make BIA the most expensive airport in India, on par with Hyderabad airport.

Bangalore also in worst in “Guide to Sleeping in Airports” rating

The “Guide to Sleeping in Airports” based its Oct. 15 rating of best and worst airports in the world on reviews and votes from travelers who spend the night in airports.

According to the website, the travelers were asked to consider comfort, conveniences, cleanliness and customer service.

The travelers cited metallic seating, crowded terminals and limited seats at the airport, making it unpopular for long delays or layovers.

The travelers’ review also cited inconveniences such as bad signage in the terminals, difficult transfers, lack of 24-hour food and nothing to do in transit, dirty floors, bathrooms, unfriendly staff, airport scams, anti-airport sleeper policies and “immigration officers who prefer to play Angry Birds than process travelers.”

Worst and best airports
Headlines ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: 1

Also in the list of the world’s worst airports are Bergamo (Italy), Calcutta (India), Islamabad (Pakistan), Paris Beauvais (France), Chennai (India), Frankfurt Hahn (Germany), Mumbai (India), Rome Fiumicino (Italy) and Los Angeles (US).

NAIA Terminal 1 also topped the list of worst airports in Asia followed by Calcutta (India), Islamabad (Pakistan), Chennai (India), Mumbai (India), Jakarta (Indonesia), Kuala Lumpur LCCT (Malaysia), Hanoi (Vietnam), Denpassar (Indonesia) and Bangalore (India).

Meanwhile, Singapore’s Changi Airport was voted the best airport this year, followed by Seoul Incheon (Korea) and Hong Kong.

Other airports in the best airports list are Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Bangkok (Thailand), Tokyo Narita (Japan), Taipei Taoyuan (Taiwan), New Delhi and Hyderabad (India).

This winter, it is air terrific at BIA


Quote:
Monday, Oct 21, 2013, 12:25 IST | Place: Bangalore | Agency: DNA
Hemanth CS

Aircraft movement increased over last year, more airlines coming up with new routes.

The number of flights operating from the Bengaluru International Airport (BIA) per day has increased this winter compared with last, indicating a clear drop in air turbulence.

According to figures made available to dna by the Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), the total number of aircraft movements in the winter 2012 was 309 per day, while it has increased to 357 in the corresponding period this year.


Apart from the increase in the number of flights, there are new domestic as well as international routes scheduled for this winter.

“New domestic routes to Surat, Dehradun and Imphal have been scheduled for the winter schedule. Besides, on the international route, Spicejet will soon start operations to Bangkok from BIA,” said BIAL.

The low-cost carrier starting October 27 will operate direct flights between Bangalore and Bangkok four days a week.

On the domestic route, Andhra Pradesh-based regional airline Air Costa is a new carrier to operate flights this winter. The airline will operate flights to two destinations on the weekends.

Starting of new routes and airlines this winter is in complete contrast to 2012. No new international airline was scheduled to start operations in winter of 2012 from the BIA. In 2012, the drop in air traffic movements was attributed to the stoppage of Kingfisher Airlines services.

An increase in 48 flights per day in winter 2013 has brought good news for the BIAL, which will soon be opening its expanded terminal, which is expected to accommodate 1.8 crore passengers annually versus the current 1.25 crore. The expanded terminal will be spread over an area of approximately 1.34 lakh sq m from the existing 72,000 sq m.
