Is this airport functioning much better now? I noticed the previous thread was closed on a rather acrimonious note due to the initial problems at BIA. I certainly hope those issues have been ironed out and the airport is functioning well.

It will last a thousand years only if it's maintained well.
You know how things in India tend to slow down after a while in terms of maintenance.
Imagine how it'll be once the second terminal is built.
A world class airport it is though the design is Blande.
I do like the fact that Many new airports use natural lighting instead of artificial ones: Bangalore, Delhi, New Kolkata Airport, and the New chennai Terminal, all take advantage of natural lighting.

My trip to Mumbai on 28th August 2008.

Since my flight King Fisher IT 102 was at 6.50 AM, I had reached BIAL by 6 AM. It was heavily raining in Bangalore too, so was not able to click the roads and the sarroundings of Airport.

Waiting for departure..

This is my flight. Aerobridges were free at that time, but KF is not using them. As we had heard earlier, perhaps BIAL charges seperately for Landing and usage of aerobridges. In my return trip, at Mumbai, the boarding to IT 111 was through aerobridge.

Thanks for the encouragement drwho. And thankyou Indrajal and Devesh for bringing those wonderful pics here - Especially the rare runway maintenance vehicles and that fantastic cobus and AL coaches - didnt know Globe Ground that such nice equipment at BIAL.

Now BIAL is beginning to look like KF's homebase...at the park ferme

Looking at the size of the A330 and the number of people it would seat - I'd shudder to think what the stituation might be in the small terminal building waiting lounge if even 3 heavies are boarding within short intervals...

Inside the spacious Cobus...
