Bengaluru airport to be partially shut for Aero India

BENGALURU: The Kempegowda International Airport will partially close commercial flight operations for almost a week due to the closure of airspace over Bengaluru in the backdrop of Aero India 2021 at Yelahanka Air Force Station from February 3 to 5.

The airport will also standby as the diversionary airport for flying display during the practise days and the main show. “BIAL is working with airlines and the IAS to ensure minimal disruption to the existing schedule during the reduced operation hours. To avoid passenger inconvenience, the respective airlines will share timely communication regarding the change in airport operations and the revised flight timings during the Aero India show,” BIAL said in a press release.

According to the airport authority, ancillary support such as airport taxis and bus services will be aligned to accommodate the anticipated increase in passenger traffic. Information on airport operations will be made available on the BIAL
website. BIAL has advised passengers to check with the respective airlines on the status of their flights.
