At the award ceremony held in Hyderabad on January 18, the airport was also conferred with the ‘>25 MPPA Traffic Award’ under the airports category.

Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), the airport operator, stated: “To ensure smooth passenger flow and a stress-free experience, the airport has increased the number of entry gates, check-in counters, and informative display boards.
