The Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru (BLR Airport) has achieved a significant milestone by crossing the 250-million passenger mark since the launch of its operations or Airport Opening Day (AOD). An additional 50 million passengers traveled from BLR Airport in a span of nearly three years despite the pandemic and consequential slowdown. Furthermore, BLR Airport also achieved the milestone of 2 million Air Traffic Movements (ATMs) since AOD, making it the fastest Public-Private Partnership (PPP) airport in South India to achieve this milestone. ( The airport, which is now managed and operated by the Canadian NRI Prem Watsa-owned Fairfax, commenced operations in May 2008.)

The addition of new carriers in conjunction with the introduction of new routes and rising passenger numbers on existing routes has led to this noteworthy accomplishment. While the pandemic has meant that traffic growth over the past two years has been slower than usual, BLR Airport has historically grown very fast, as evidenced by how quickly the Airport has reached some of these milestones.

Hari Marar, MD & CEO, Bangalore International Airport Ltd (BIAL), said, “Reaching the 250 million milestones reassures us that our customer-centric approach, innovation, and technically advanced infrastructure, in conjunction with the introduction of new routes and working closely with our airline partners and other stakeholders have led to consistent growth at BLR Airport. The milestone that we have achieved in such a short span is proof of our dedicated efforts to introduce the best to our passengers.”
