On May 13th, I had visited the new Bengaluru International Airport being constructed by the BIAL consortium, and posted my visit report. Some BIAL officials called around wanting to find out who took me inside the airport. The reason — they wanted to escort and show me around the airport.
I welcome BIAL sentiments and will visit BIAL anytime, at BIAL’s invitation.
Industry and citizens have genuine concerns on the capacity and cargo facilities at the new airport. BIAL has not, effectively utilised multiple opportunities offered by Chambers of Commerce to allay these concerns.
Industry, including me, are not opposed to BIAL, but at the same time, we are not willing to blindly believe vague indications being offered by BIAL. Mr. Brunner, please take the time to sit down with us, allay our fears, give us specific data, clarify our interpretations.
Convince us on your airport, Mr. Brunner.
