Bangalore puts technology at the core of growth strategy

21 January 2019

Bangalore International Airport Ltd (BIAL), operator of Kempegowda International Airport, has embarked on a USD2 billion expansion programme that includes a new 255,650 m 2 Terminal 2 (T2) and a second 4,000 m-long runway.
Architects for the first phase of the T2 project are Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, with Turner Construction Company in support for project engineering. Indian company Larsen & Toubro is leading the construction effort, and in October 2018 it began work on the new south parallel runway, apron, and associated airfield infrastructure. A new air traffic control tower is not required.
BIAL plans to complete the second runway by September 2019, with the terminal to follow by March 2021.
“BIAL works with some of the best brains in the industry – from across the globe – to ensure that projects are of the best quality as well as delivered on time,” a spokesman for the airport operator told Jane’s .
Modern technology will touch “every point of the passenger journey” in T2, said BIAL managing director and CEO Hari Marar.
