Diaper station at Kempegowda International Airport men’s loo a hit online
TNN | Sep 17, 2019

Quote:
BENGALURU: After a Maldivian passenger posted photos on Twitter of a baby diaper changing station inside the men’s washroom at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA), many netizens have hailed the authorities’ move as the right one in breaking gender stereotypes.

“Saw this in Bangalore International airport men’s room,” read Maldivian national Ali Samhaan’s tweet on September 12 along with a picture of the diaper changing room.



Although the diaper changing facility at the airport has come under the limelight only recently, Bangalore International Airport Ltd (BIAL), operator of the KIA, pointed out that it has been in place for more than five years. “The diaper change station has been a feature of all washrooms — irrespective of gender — at the KIA for over five years,” said a BIAL spokesperson.



‘Diaper station a great gesture’
Diaper-change stations are well-equipped and enable a parent to change a baby in privacy and comfort,” said a BIAL spokesperson.

“It’s a wonderful gesture from #Bengaluruinternationalairport taking towards sensitising gender equality. Keep up the good work,” wrote Pradeep Prakash on Twitter.

As per my observation the BMTC Bus terminal at Kempegowda International Airport needs some additional requirements w.r.t passenger amenities. Some of them include free drinking water facility to the bus passengers at the airport's BMTC Bus terminal.

Also a new Flight Display Status screen to inform regarding the arrival/departure status of flights is required to be installed at the bus terminal.

The above facilities will help improve efficiency in delivery and also help airline and bus passengers with such better facilities.

Opinions and suggestions welcome.

KIA fastest-growing airport in the world
[email protected]

Quote:
Bengaluru: With over 3.2 crore passengers passing through it in 2018, Kempegowda International Airport is the fastest-growing airport in the world, says the latest world traffic report published by Airports Council International (ACI) on Tuesday. KIA has registered a 29% growth in passenger traffic as compared to the previous year.

Apart from KIA, Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) in Hyderabad is another Indian airport which has made it to the list of top five fastest growing airports. Hyderabad stands at the third place, after Antalya airport in Turkey, and precedes Vnukovo airport in the Russian Federation.

According to the report, a majority of the world’s fastest growing airports in terms of passenger traffic are located in the Asia- Pacific region. In fact, 12 of 2018’s 30 fastest-growing airports across the globe are either in China or India.

However, in terms of the total number of passengers carried and aircraft movements, New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport is the only one from India to have found a spot in the top 20 rankings. It has been ranked 12th in the number passengers (nearly 7 crore) carried in 2018 — it occupied the 16th spot in 2017 — and 13th in the number of aircraft movement (4.8 lakh), up from it’s 21st rank in 2017.

“It’s a matter of great pride for us at Bangalore International Airport Limited that KIA has been ranked the fastest-growing airport in the world,” a BIAL spokesperson said, adding: “The impressive rise of Bengaluru as a hub of economic activity in South India and the airport’s ever growing network are key factors that have contributed to this phenomenal growth.”

With economic slowdown, most Indian airports may see stagnation, if not traffic decline in the coming years (until the economy picks up).

SpiceJet flight returns minutes after take-off

Quote:
Passengers of SpiceJet flight (SG 3743) operating on the Bengaluru-Mangaluru route said the aircraft made an emergency landing at KIA after take off on Tuesday as its wheels got stuck. The flight which left KIA around 8.15pm returned within a few minutes. While SpiceJet claimed it was a ‘normal’ landing and not an ‘emergency’ or ‘priority’ landing, passengers claimed otherwise.

“Flight SG3743 Bangalore to Mangalore made emergency landing to Bangalore airport(17/09) 8:15pm flight after takeoff as landing gear didn't go up. Why such things are not checked before takeoff? Will there be an inquiry?” tweeted Rahul Maheshwari, a passenger.

On landing, the flight was taken to the bay for inspection, while the passengers were accommodated in a different aircraft which departed from KIA at 10.20pm. It landed in Mangaluru at 11.25pm, more than two hours after the scheduled arrival time.

“On September 17, SpiceJet Q400 aircraft operating flight SG-3743 (Bengaluru-Mangaluru) returned to Bengaluru due to a technical issue. It is clarified that the aircraft made a normal landing and not an emergency or priority landing. We deny reports which state otherwise,” said a SpiceJet spokesperson. TNN

I think these issues may have been considered with expansion (construction of T2, transport hub etc).

Earlier, the date for 2nd runway inaguration was announced to be effective October 1. Has the date been postponed to December?

Water & flight status screen/s will require underground piping & cabling which will have to be removed or re-routed along with all the fittings within the next 2 years (including the bus shelters) as they will probably be relocating the bus terminal during ph-1 of the construction of T2.

Besides, the bus shelters are roof only type & do not offer sufficient protection for electronic displays.

A walk of maybe 150 mtrs to the terminal building gets you both. Water fountains are also fitted at the quad which is just opposite the bus terminal.

Earlier, they had expanded the eatery area by building the quad in free land available opposite the bus terminal. The quad may survive till expansion of T2, which may be some 5-6 years away.
The eateries are all temporary structures & built with the idea that they would be demolished in due time.

BIAL adopts govt schools, helps improve SSLC ranking

Quote:

ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ಅಂತಾರಾಷ್ಟ್ರೀಯ ವಿಮಾನ ನಿಗಮ ಸಿಎಸ್ಆರ್ ನಿಧಿಯಡಿ ನಿರ್ಮಿಸಿರುವ ಬೆಟ್ಟಕೋಟೆಯ ಸರ್ಕಾರಿ ಹಿರಿಯ ಪ್ರಾಥಮಿಕ ಶಾಲೆಯ ದೃಶ್ಯ –ಪ್ರಜಾವಾಣಿ ಚಿತ್ರ: ಎಂ.ಎಸ್*.ಮಂಜುನಾಥ್*

Rasheed Kappan, Bengaluru, DHNS

Adopting and rebuilding five government schools in Devanahalli, the Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) says it played a key role in powering Bengaluru Rural District to 3rd from 14th in the state SSLC ranking for the 2018-19 academic year.

Under its Corporate Social Responsibility, BIAL rebuilt and transformed three government-run schools into modern facilities. Six more schools were refurbished by improving infrastructure and education quality.

The construction of two schools is expected to be completed before the start of the next academic year (2020-21), taking the total number to five. These measures led to a threefold increase in student enrollment for the ongoing academic year, BIAL officials said.

During a media walk through of an adopted government school in Bettakote, Devanahalli on Friday, BIAL demonstrated how the students now had access to computer rooms, science labs, playgrounds and libraries.

BIAL Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Hari Marar said all schools are powered by solar energy. Besides providing learning material and stationery for 2,500 students, BIAL, in association with Sri Sathya Sai Annapurna Trust, provides breakfast for over 3,000 children from across 30 schools, each day.

BIAL has collaborated with the state department of education to implement the learning enhancement program. The aim: to recruit 100 English and other subject matter experts for selected government schools in Devanahalli Taluk. So far, 50 teachers have been recruited and deployed at various schools, Marar informed.

To improve performance in the SSLC examinations, 2,800 under performing SSLC students from four taluks of the district were identified and given special tutorials in Mathematics, Science and English based on the syllabus prescribed by the Karnataka State Education Board.

As part of this initiative, subject matter experts were engaged to mentor the teachers, who then trained the students on these subjects. To improve and encourage attendance at the tutorials, BIAL provided transport and special meals for students. This initiative, for the current academic year, will be rolled out from October 2019.

When will the east exit road tunnel open? Seen slightly in the satellite image. They should open it this December when the second runway opens. Second runway is CAT III B, so there wont be fog disruptions this winter

Looks like Sadahalli flyover work (near toll gate) is about to commence. The main carriageways have been cordoned off & traffic is using service roads. As a result, there is some congestion delay in way of sadahalli cross.

Domestic lounge is undergoing renovation.

East tunnel will not be opened with 2nd runway. It will probably open when T2 is opened or later, depending on when the east cargo terminal is commissioned.

Historical Imageries of Bengaluru Airport

Here are some old imageries of BLR airport, till 2017, to see how the airport has been grown from the past.

Courtesy : Google Earth Pro

In 2003, an empty wasteland...



In 2008/2009 with old T1





In 2013-14, with new extended T1 A, and resurfaced RWY



With the two new Rapid Exit Taxiways in 2017



I hope the present Imagery published recently with the ready NSPR is the latest development.

Also I would request someone to get a clear enlarged picture of the new NSPR and Taxiway system.
