BIAL completes 100 days of resumption of domestic travel, welcomes 1.4 m passengers

Bengaluru: Beginning of the month of September marks 100 days since the resumption of scheduled domestic air travel in India and the Bengaluru International Airports Ltd (BIAL), which operates the Kempegowda International Airport, has welcomed 1.4 million domestic passengers with 15,658 Air Traffic Movements.
Operations were permitted by the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) starting May 25, 2020, following a two-month COVID-induced lockdown.
During the lockdown, together with the aviation community, BIAL worked relentlessly to put in place best-in-class measures at Kempegowda International Airport to create a safe, secure and seamless experience for passengers.
The technologically-enabled Parking-to-Boarding contactless journey that minimises all physical contact was developed and rolled out in just two weeks. Aided with facial-recognition for self-boarding, pioneered and rolled out earlier at BLR Airport as well as various sanitisation and hygiene measures, ensured that passengers continued to have a seamless, touch-free Airport experience.
As compared to July 2020, there was 39% growth in Air Traffic Movements (ATMs) and over 47% growth in passenger traffic in August 2020 indicating a positive trend with successive measures to unlock India’s economy.
With the relaxation of state regulations and the addition of capacity by airlines, the numbers are expected to increase in the coming days and months.
