Bengaluru: Scheduled flights won’t be hit

Bengaluru: Flights from Kempegowda International Airport scheduled on the days of lockdown will operate as planned, a government order has said.

Bengaluru police said flyers can travel by road to the airport with a copy of the ticket. Soon after the lockdown was announced on Saturday night, social media was flooded with queries from flyers, both domestic and international, who had flights scheduled during the period. Many are about to fly out of the city and into the city, while some were anxious transit passengers.

KIA authorities said no new flights will be scheduled during the lockdown , while tickets, if available, can be booked for the existing ones.

When Kolkata went into lockdown, domestic flight operations were suspended and it was announced in advance. However, despite Chennai city going into an intense lockdown last month, flight operations were on, including repatriation flights to and from international destinations.
According to airport sources, the Chennai model will be emulated in Bengaluru as passengers with tickets booked prior to the lockdown announcement can fly as scheduled by carrying their boarding pass or copy of their online booking.

“As per the government orders, all scheduled flights will be operational,” said an operations staffer from the airport.
