Bengaluru airport details expansion plan

Bengaluru's Kempegowda International airport is looking at ways to further expand the capacity of its existing terminal to cope with the unanticipated growth that the airport is experiencing.

Speaking to Flightglobal at World Routes in Durban, its president of airport operations Hari Marar says that growth at the airport has "gone beyond what we've anticipated". While the airport projected a 12-13% annual growth, it saw a 30% jump in passenger numbers over the last 12 months.

Marar says the entrance of three low-cost carriers - AirAsia India, Air Costa and Air Pegasus - have driven growth over the last year. The lower fuel prices have also allowed airlines to "test the elasticity of pricing more", further stimulating market demand.
