Bengaluru Kempegowda International airport Terminal 2 begins operation

Domestic flight operations from the Kempegowda International airport Terminal 2 have started.  The first flight from Terminal 2 of the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) in Bengaluru, operated by Star Air, took off to Kalaburagi. The first flight to land at KIA too was by the same airline on its return leg.

A Dollu Kunitha performance, a cake-cutting ceremony, fun events and the lighting of the traditional lamp inside T2 premises marked the launch of its commercial operations. They also delayed the take-off of S5-117 by 5 minutes.

According to reports, other domestic airlines such as Vistara, and Air Asia will also begin operating from terminal 2 soon. International operations are expected to commence in April from the terminal.

Terminal 2 is said to be an eco-friendly facility constructed at an estimated ₹5,000 crore largely using bamboo.
