BIAL to invest over Rs 13,000 crore for development and expansion

Announcing one of the largest infrastructure projects in the country, Bangalore International Airport Limited or BIAL is set to undertake a massive Rs 13,000 crore capital programme to cater to the demands of a civil aviation market that has been growing at a blistering pace of 25 percent YoY for the last 3 years. The current capital development programme includes a new terminal, a second runway, massive expansion to the access roads and internal road infrastructure, utilities as well as a new multi-modal transport hub.
Commenting on the ongoing projects, Hari Marar, MD & CEO, BIAL, said, “BIAL worked with some of the finest global minds on the design and planning of this Terminal. While T2 is designed to be an iconic terminal - one that Bengaluru can truly be proud of – it will be built at the most affordable cost and in the most responsible manner. The Terminal will be world-class in all respects - starting from its design, the processes, the people who manage it, the sustainable practices it embraces and the performance it achieves.”
The airport in a press release said that during the construction phase, BIAL’s teams will put various processes in place and work closely with multiple stakeholders to ensure minimal impact on the passenger experience. BIAL will also undertake a slew of measures to continuously cater to the requirements of growth for the period of development of the new infrastructure.
Meanwhile, Tom Shimmin, chief project officer, BIAL, said, “Designed to provide the highest level of passenger comfort and dramatic visual impression, upon completion, the new terminal will substantially increase the overall capacity of the Airport. T2 is designed in a manner that we retain the philosophy of simplicity and minimal walking distances for the passengers – a key characteristic of the BLR Airport.”
