BIAL approves redesign of international airport

Chennai/ Bangalore: The board of the Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) on Monday in-principle approved the redesign of the new international airport.
However, the board has sought certain clarifications from the equity holders and the final decision is expected in the next few weeks. According to a BIAL press release, the redesign of the airport project is based on the revision of traffic forecast done in June 2005. The study has estimated the traffic flows for the new airport on the “airport opening year” (2008) at 6.7 million passengers from the 4.5 million passengers estimated earlier.
Subsequently, the figure is expected to climb to 8.5 million passengers in year 2010, the release said. The redesign will see an increase in the size of the passenger terminal building, number of aircraft stands, more taxiways, passenger boarding bridges and the main access road enabling the airport to match the expected traffic in the coming years, the release added.
