Bangalore International Airport on talent hunt

Bangalore: Bangalore International Airport Ltd plans to have a team of 80 personnel by this year-end, up from the current 35. The going has been a little tardy, admits the BIAL CEO, Albert Brunner.
Air transport in India is expanding at a pace that is one of the fastest in the world and there is a scarcity of experienced personnel in this field, he told Business Line.
When the Rs 1,411-crore Devanahalli airport opens as planned in April 2008, it will be handling 7 million passengers and peak hour traffic of 27 aircraft. It will need 300 personnel by then. BIAL's aim is to immediately hire about a dozen senior and middle-level managers to run the daily operations, to market the airport to airlines and various commercial users so that the retail, entertainment, hospitality and commercial units are in place in two years.
