Bengaluru International Airport to improve and expand by 2021

The Bengaluru airport, known as Kempegowda International Airport, is looking to improve and expand so as to increase its traffic. The airport that holds 20 million passengers currently is looking to increase this number by 2021.
There are plans for a new terminal, T2, that would be completed in two phases. Construction giant Larsen & Toubro has been sanctioned INR 3035 cr worth for the contract last year. According to reports, the project that is to be completed in 2021 will cover an area of 255000 sq mt. Given the magnitude of the work that is being carried out, Bengaluru International Airport is expecting a 70 per cent growth in traffic over the next two years.

The airport is already big on sustainability, and almost 67 per cent of the airport’s energy comes from renewable sources. It currently uses sources such as harvested rainwater and treated water for most of its water requirements. Now, according to a spokesperson, the plan is to drive this efficiency by making optimal use of natural light and using treated water in order to reduce dependence on mechanical conditioning. The airport will have PV solar panels so as to generate 4.13 MW of power in phase 1 of the construction.
