L&T arm to build Bengaluru airport's second terminal

Infrastructure major Larson & Toubro's (L&T) buildings and factories business arm would build the second terminal of the Bengaluru international airport, said its operator on Wednesday.

"The Rs 3,036-crore order to construct the airport's terminal-2 has been given to the Building & Factories Business of L&T," said the operator Bangalore International Airport Ltd (BIAL) in a statement here.

The operator is a private-cum-public consortium of the decade-old greenfield Kempegowda airport at Devanahalli, 35km north of the tech hub.

"The terminal will augment the airport's capacity by 25 million passengers per annum when completed by March 2021 to 45 million from 20 million presently," said BIAL Chief Executive Hari Marar on the occasion.
