Any chance of Bangalore to Seoul non-stop?
This flight will cover Seoul traffic too, if any. JAL and ANA focus on premium connecting traffic predominantly

One of the two major S.Korean airlines is in a bad shape. Asiana is already cutting DEL. If Korean air has to start any new route in India, it will first look at DEL before expanding elsewhere.

Better to transit via Hong Kong or Delhi for Bangalore to Seoul, than via Tokyo, it saves time. Or even via Bangkok.

Delhi to Seoul already 2 non-stop flights are there, excluding Asiana. Esp the non-stop Seoul will help Bangalore to USA travellers.

Bengaluru | Kempegowda International Airport | BLR

Alliances and loyalty points would matter for premium customers. AI is out of question practically.

KIA looks to green future with free plant initiative
World Environment Day
Rasheed Kappan, DH News Service, Bengaluru, JUN 03 2019,

Quote:
This World Environment Day on June 5, the Kempegowda International Airport will launch a unique green initiative: Every passenger who registers will get a plant from the airport’s nursery.



KIA operator, Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), explains the thinking behind this project:
“To spread greenery and create a positive impact on the environment.”

About 10,000 plants will be given away to both passengers and visitors to the airport, one per head. All that they need to do is sign up at (https://bengaluruairport.co/Adopt-A-Plant) or refer to the airport’s social media platforms @BLRAirport.

Those interested can also provide details onsite to collect their plant at The Quad. On offer will be a variety of plants, including Rhoeo (Oyster plant), Tradescantia Pallida Purpurea (Purple heart), Tradescantia Zebrina (Inch plant), Zephyranthes Candida (White Lilly) and Zephyranthes Rosea (Pink
Lilly).

Currently, on a Rs 13,000 crore infrastructure upgrade mode, KIA will get a sweeping garden-themed look for its Terminal 2. BIAL says several trees and shrubs that are in the path of the expansion will be safely translocated, while other plants that cannot be reused will be given away to the public free of
cost.

BIAL to translocate 7,095 trees for terminal
Rakshitha R, DH News Service, Bengaluru, JUN 06 2019

Quote:
Saving environment has turned a costly affair even to the Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) which is shelling out as much as Rs 2.5 crore to translocate thousands of trees, as a new terminal, runway and many more are going to take shape soon.

The land surrounding the new runway will be carpeted with lush greenery, making the Kempegowda International Airport the first in India and only third in the world to have green corridors around the runway.

Infrastructural development has been taken up at the airport at a cost of Rs 13,000 crore. There will be a transformation in its landscape to amalgamate with the new terminal – designed to be terminal in a garden. Over 7,095 trees and shrubs that are in the path of the expansion will be translocated to other locations within the airport premises in a phased manner, further enhancing the landscape all the way from the trumpet to the terminal.

A total of 1,285 trees and plants will be translocated in the first phase, and the rest will be carried out over the next two years. The BIAL has tied up with Volvo Trucks and Institute of Wood Science and Technology for the execution of the translocation project.

By following scientific methods, the trees will be uprooted from their original location and replanted in selected areas – without damaging its roots. The tree-transplanter is capable of translocating around 17 large trees each day.

Prasanna Murthi Desai, vice president and the head of landscape, BIAL, said around 1,600 trees have been manually dislocated and 240 plus trees have been dislocated using machines.

“There are many steps involved in translocating trees. We have to do pre-assessment to check if the tree is healthy. Water loss is minimised through methods of trenching and shaping the root ball. This is important as some of the absorbing roots are pruned during transplanting.

“Aer the root is wrapped, it is kept moist and tightly secured to prevent it from breaking. The trees will be lied through the barrel strap technique to their new home aer which post-monitoring will be done,” he said.

Part of KIA main road to be closed for 2 years from June 10
TNN | Updated: Jun 7, 2019

Quote:
BENGALURU: To widen the main access road (MAR) of Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) from the existing four lane to 10, a 1.4km MAR stretch will be closed for two years from June 10.



The MAR links the trumpet interchange to the airport terminal.
Following the closure, traffic will be diverted to a new six-lane (three each in two directions) south access road (SAR), built parallel to the existing MAR.

Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) announced the road diversion details on Thursday. Vehicles coming to the airport will turn right at the first roundabout after the trumpet interchange and enter the SAR to reach the terminal. Vehicles heading out of the airport from the departure gates will follow the existing exit path from the terminal and head towards P6 parking bay to reach the SAR. Vehicles returning from the arrival gates will continue using the existing route towards SAR.

The widened MAR is expected to reopen in early 2021. To manage increasing cargo traffic, a secondary road leading to the cargo terminals will be widened to four lanes later this year. The trumpet interchange, too, will be expanded – from the existing three to five lanes on either side, without disrupting traffic.

Owing to a sharp rise in passenger volumes and cargo transportation, vehicular movement at KIA has seen a surge. To cater to this growth, BIAL has invested Rs 13,000 crore to construct terminal 2, a second runway, and other associated projects.
PS: Much clearer & better route map from DH:

We still pay the toll?

They could have just closed one way of the road ( entry) & after its expanded , closed the second way ( exit), the south entrance could be used as exit until entry road is completed and the vice versa.

Toll is by NHAI outside trumpet interchange for the express way & I suppose it will continue as before.

Since KIAL has developed alternate roads within its premises, its better they close & do a proper job since the widening includes greening & also provision for metro /viaduct.

So nice and clean Namma Bengaluru Airport thread.

Kudos MODS. Except that the India Aviation thread (to which the posts have been moved) is now a jumbled up mess with overlapping conversations that readers will find difficulty in comprehending. But I suppose no such accountability towards members exists, so I'll shut up.

Well done indeed.
