To avoid traffic, more opt for overnight flights at Kempegowda International Airport

Bengaluru: Air passengers in the city are increasingly opting for odd-hour, overnight departures and arrivals to beat Bengaluru traffic.
Earning their name from the puffy eyes they can leave travellers with, red-eye flights (10pm to 6am) are both cheaper on the pocket and allow passengers to reach their destination early. Statistics from the Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) show that domestic red-eye flight movement at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) has increased from 28 flights a night in 2013-14 to a staggering 91 in 2017-18. Similarly, international flight departures at night at KIA have also gone up — from 24 per night in 2013-14 to 31 in 2017-18.
While a majority of the international flights are operated at night, domestic ones are between 6am and 10am and 5pm and 1am. Now, the number of domestic flights being operated after 1am has  increased.
