It’s partly because some airports in developed countries impose night curfews, and partly because some airports around the world operate 24/7/365
How many times have you taken a flight at midnight or even at 3 am, spent the rest of the night sitting uncomfortably in an economy class seat, and reached your destination bleary eyed and sleep deprived? And what about those living close to airports in metros, who complain that the noise from aircraft that are taking off and landing in the middle of the night disturbs their sleep, and more importantly causes noise pollution?

Well, this happens because airports in India, like those in a host of other countries, including Singapore, Dubai and Colombo, operate their airports 24/7, 365 days a year..........

A topic to discuss
with a supporting picture...
Some airports have runways tangential to the city. Like BLR. So there wont be noise pollution in city limits. But cities with radial direction runways cause flights to fly low over the city, such airports can have night curfew.

If the authorities decide that the new Navi Mumbai Aiport and BLR instead of Delhi should become major transfer hubs instead of Delhi (unlikely scenario) in the context of west bound international flights having to fly a circutous route (south to Mumbai and then west over the Arabian sea) then we may very well see a massive surge in transfer traffic at Mumbai and Bangalore airports since it may be more fuel efficient for airlines to fly widebodies non stop out of Navi Mumbai and BLR & have narrow body connections from/to DEL.
Flying away from equator reduces the distance. And also flying to northern hemisphere from Delhi reduces distance for connecting flights from other cities of India too. So the market will favour Delhi over Mumbai or Bangalore, not the authorities. But once Navi Mumbai comes, it can become hub for south Indian cities and other country cities.

Well, yes, but this thing also tells about the increased number of flights, mainly Int'l and domestic flights(slowly increasing) in the night time, it's kind of abnormal to have high traffic and high peak airport activities, at Indian airports, especially during odd hours.

But seriously no one can't help it, coz it's airlines and aviation business.

W.R.T BLR, you see only during night time the BLR looks quite crowded with so many Narrow-bodied planes and some of the wide-bodied planes.

I feel it's better to try and/or reduce the no of flights/ frequencies during late night/ midnight hours. And increase the activities more during the day time, great that few airlines like EK, MH, WY, etc. operate one or more international frequencies during the daytime, now EK is adding another frequency somewhere in the late afternoon too.

................................

Also, can anyone confirm the new JAL flight to Tokyo (NRT),starting somewhere in summer 2020, cuz from the JAL website itself, I didn't get the direct nonstop flight, instead I'm getting options to transfer either at HKG or KUL, in the website.

No need. Since Bangalore runway is tangential to the city, noise pollution doesnt affect people at all. Earlier HAL airport used to cause noise pollution, there should be ban there on night landing, dont ban in current airport.

Direct Tokyo flight can be used for connecting flights to USA west coast too.

Yes, very well, of course, but generally people book flights somewhere 5-6 months before the departing date or even more than that, or confirm their booking earlier. But in the JAL website, I'm not getting at least some info about the direct nonstop flight to NRT, such as flight no, booking, and other info, whereas in case of LH to MUC (say) you get options to book the ticket, flight info, etc. are available on either Google or LH website itself even NOW.

Do JAL lately confirm the new flights ?? or is it something else.

If you want, you can check this link....

P.S:- I also selected a west coast destination (i.e, SFO), but what I get is some error or failure

Curious to know why there is this unconnected space between the Apron and Taxiway Exit. Could they have been combined into a single Apron entry/exit?

Construction work isn't finished yet, IMO.

That space was occupied by a temporary boundary wall (between the construction area and the active air-side) and the perimeter road running along it. Paving will probably will be taken up when they can afford to block off that adjacent active taxiway.

Bengaluru likely to commission second runway on 5th December
The Airports Authority of India (AAI) which manages Air Traffic Control services at all but defense airports in the country has released an AIP (Aeronautical Information Publication) supplement with information on commissioning of South Runway 09R/27L with associated infrastructure at Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru.

The AIP is effective 5th December. As the secondary runway gets commissioned, the existing runway 09/27 will be re-designated as 09L/27R. The PCN (Pavement Classification Number) for Runway 09L/27R is 80 while for 09R/27L is 98. Both the runways will have same TORA, TODA, ASDA, LDA.

The difference will be on the approach and runway lighting side with the existing runway having Category I Instrumentation Landing System (ILS) while the new runway 09R/27L will have Category III ILS with centerline lighting. This will enable landing and take-off during days when the airport is covered in fog, with minimum visibility requirements down to as low as 50 mtrs compared to 550 mtrs currently, for landing.

New runway is closer to Yelahanka AFB, so I'd think the answer is no.

But the Aero Event should be 'safer', considering display aircraft have one more runway option to land on in case of emergencies.

AF 194 Flight Diverted to IST

On 19th Oct 2019, Air France 194 from Paris (CDG) to Bengaluru (BLR), was diverted to the new Istanbul Airport (IST), for some reasons, that is unknown, can anyone find out, or predict what exactly the reason was. It's a Boeing 777-228ER on action.

Any technical or operational reasons/issues behind this??
(The arrival time is unknown)
