Bengaluru International Airport

Bengaluru International Airport(IATA: BLR, ICAO: VOBL) is a 4,050 acres (16.4 km2) international airport serving the city of Bengaluru, Karnataka, India. The airport is located in Devanahalli, which is 50 km (31 mi) from the city. It replaced the old HAL Bangalore International Airport. Construction of the airport began in July 2005, after a decade long postponement. It was expected to be inaugurated on March 30, 2008 but due to delays in air traffic control (ATC) services, it started its operations on the night of 23 May 2008, just before midnight.

The passenger terminal is a single, fully air-conditioned, two-level building capable of accommodating international and domestic operations. The basement houses the retail storage, rest areas and services. The arrival and departure areas are separated vertically with a modern, simple, straight-ahead flow system. The domestic and international departure lounges, and the majority of the retail outlets are located on level 2 (first floor). The check-in facilities and baggage reclaim are located on level 1 (ground floor). The terminal is designed for ease of operation and minimum maintenance.

Runway The airport has one runway as of now. The runway can accommodate all types of aircraft including the Airbus A380. There are plans to build a second runway when the annual traffic of the airport reaches 18 million passengers per year which is currently estimated to reach around 2013-2014.
