“Kempegowda International Airport’s Terminal 2 Launches International Flight Services”

International Flights Take Off from Bengaluru Airport's Terminal 2

International flight services have commenced from Terminal-2 (T2) of Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) in Bengaluru, with the inaugural flight being Saudi Airlines flight SV 866 from Jeddah.

The Bengaluru Airport celebrated the milestone with an announcement on X, sharing the news of the first international flight’s arrival at Terminal 2. Travelers and passengers were directed to the airport’s customer engagement center for assistance.

Expanded Operations at T2

In addition to handling international flights, Terminal-2 (T2) will also accommodate domestic flights for four airlines: AirAsia, Air India, Star Air, and Vistara. Initially slated to begin international operations on August 31, the relocation of international operations to T2 was briefly postponed by Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) just before the scheduled launch.

Terminal-2, often referred to as the ‘Terminal in a Garden,’ is a distinctive project designed as a tribute to Bengaluru, known as the ‘Garden City.’ Its construction began in October 2018 and was planned in two phases. Phase 1, covering an area of 255,645 square meters, was designed to accommodate 25 million passengers per annum (MPPA). The second phase, still in planning, is expected to further enhance the terminal’s capacity to handle 20 MPPA.

Upon completion of both phases, Terminal-2 will have the capacity to serve a total of 70 million passengers per annum. This expansion and modernization underscore the airport’s commitment to meeting the escalating demands for air travel in Bengaluru and its role as a prominent regional hub. The commencement of international operations at T2 signifies a significant step in the airport’s development and service offerings.
