The Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru has now launched an Indoor Ambulance Service with two vehicles, to provide quick medical emergency response.

Our aim is to provide the best care for passengers who need emergency support," said Thomas Hoff Andersson, Chief Operating Officer, Bangalore International Airport Limited.
