Bengaluru International Airport

The Bengaluru International Airport has been a boon for travellers, having replaced the previous HAL Bangalore International Airport.

Exact Location:
* 35km North of Bangalore city centre(MG Road)
* Off National Highway 7 (Bangalore-Hyderabad Highway)

Getting to the Airport:
Before you head to the Airport, remember to leave a few hours early. Yes, this is what most travellers are advised to do, but this is especially the case with Bangalore. Why? Well, because you never know when some massive jam will create a speedbreaker in your journey to the airport! In fact, people are constantly complaining of increased construction activity and lesser infrastructure facilities in the city. So don't miss your flight needlessly.

Irrespective of the amount of luggage you are carrying, instead of hiring an expensive rental car, opt for the air-conditioned Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) bus services(note: non-AC buses are also available). These are regular, efficient, and comfortable. They operate from 12 different points in the city every 30 minutes, throughout the day. What's more, all the buses have adequate baggage storage space.
