Bangalore airport to partially close for Aero India and runway work

Bengaluru Kempegowda International airport will partially shut operations from February 8th to 18th due to the Aero India air show to allow for show rehearsals and flying displays.

The airport will close from the 8th to 11th February for show rehearsals and from the 12th to 18th for the show itself.

The airport operator, BIAL, has informed the airlines who are responsible to communicate changes in the flight times to passengers booked on their respective flights. Bangalore Aviation recommends passengers to please check with their airlines immediately.
