At arrival gate , custom officials try to suck your blood after immigration and again after receipt of check in Baggage. You need to fill a form at immigration, probably immigration officials are uneducated and can’t read the pasport (For all airports in India)
If you would like to have five star international jail experience, please visit Bangalore international Airport

Vij Bang, April 5, 2014 at 1:49 pm

The cab operators inside airport say they charge only Rs.15 per kilometer, whereas outside airport taxi costs Rs. 20. In reality, they take Rs.30 (onward plus return), wheras airport taxi charge are only oneway ( Out side private cab operators who exploit you like free ATM machine, have been restricted to some extent now)

Bangalore International jail. I hate going to Bangalore international air port, but no other option as i need to visit Bangalore from abroad at least once in a month. No smoking rooms inside the air port, both at departure as well as arrival, including executive / Business class lounge. (The one which was available at departure has been removed recently) Taxi /cab operators behind you to insist – you book a taxi through them, though Airport taxi is available outside. ).

Better Airport Than The Previous One

Aravind Shankar Ram, January 16, 2011 at 2:32 pm

Bangalore airport is much better than the previous one. Definitely they could have done better but I believe this will get better over period of time.

Update

Chris Couck, November 18, 2008 at 5:50 pm

I passed through the airport 8 November 2008 arriving from Mumbai and then leaving again to Chennai on 12 November 2008, so I only saw the domestic portion of it. A pleasant experience – modern and efficient as you would expect of a new airport. No issues at all, everything well signposted etc… and not very crowded which was clearly different from BOM/MAA. Visitors have to pay to get inside so I guess that explains that. Airport is definitely VERY FAR from the city center – 55 minutes if the traffic is OK but it could take up to 2 hours if it’s not.

New Airport

S Prasad, May 21, 2008 at 8:27 am

Just to set the record straight. Bangalore now has two airports HAL and BIAL. HAL was the old one, which was essentially a defense airfield adapter for commercial operations. Facilities were rather poor and ground handling by govt agency Airport Authority of India (AAI) was pathetic. But the new BIAL airport is a modern commercial airport, built in collaboration with Zurich Airport. It’s opening on May 22, 2008. HAL airport would be closed once BIAL is opened.

Bangalore Hal Airport

Sandro Rodriguez, September 17, 2007 at 4:31 pm

This airport is very old. When I first arrived I noticed people coming into the plane to help unload some of the garbage. Half of them were wearing uniforms the other half were wearing their own personal clothing (To me it looked very unprofessional). When I walked out of the jet way (the most modern thing in the airport), I first noticed the spinning fans on the ceiling inside the airport. I missed the prepaid taxi therefore I paid $35 (probably paid a monthly wage for a taxi cab) for a 3-4 mile ride to my airport. I missed the information booth if there were any information booth. People are not very friendly at the airport; they just want to whisk you away so you can go and get out of their hair. Guess that is good if you have been there before…but for new people it is alarming how little help you can get around. Oh and the place you can change money is small and the attendant not very helpful. The airport is located very close to the city so that is a positive. When I left Bangalore the only stores that was available was a small store that had some stuff about Bangalore but I couldn’t even find anything worth spending my last rupees. Forget about getting a seat to wait for your plane because there are not enough chairs. The security is really bad given that there is so much global terrorism. There is only one runway from what I saw so the plane had to go to the end and make a turn on the same runway in order to take off. The people in Bangalore are wonderful and friendly (guess not workers at the airport) and actually the Bangalore city is developing and you will find a lot of new modern buildings (malls, office buildings, etc). But it is a shame that you are greeted by this airport and that your last impression of India (at least for me) is this airport. Bangalore deserves a much better airport given that it is highly and quickly developing.

Empty and Clueless Information Staff and Ill-equipped Counter

Thomas K Abraham, July 9, 2007 at 7:36 am

Bangalore International Airport, known as ‘HAL Airport’ is situated on Airport Road and well within the city- about 6 km from MG Road – the city centre. A not-so-busy airport with a little over 70 international and domestic flight landings everyday, this airport is divided into two terminals. Terminal I contains the Departure lounge for the Domestic Flights and Terminal II is for Arrival of Domestic Flights. International Terminal handles Departure and Arrival of International flights. The airport is a major hub in the South Zone for traveling and for the feeder routes. The worst things about Bangalore Airport in my opinion are: 1. Information Don’t even expect it. Imagine a great IT City of Bangalore without a computer network and information clueless people around to greet you when you are in need of help or information. People arriving from Overseas are flabbergasted by the way HAL Airport Authorities handle passengers without proper etiquette or wanted information. The airport lobby is filled with uncourteous low-class people or full of drivers hungry to loot someone. There is no proper telephonic query system in place, nor any websites for that. No Internet information. No flight status. Nothing. It is highly passenger unfriendly. to say the least. 2. Infrastructure If you are to receive a person, don’t expect to get a place to sit. Not even a bench. If you have a child, be prepared for the hellish experience. Also get along a mosquito repellent if you happen to visit the airport at night. 3. Taxi Apart from prepaid taxi (which is good), other taxis or auto-rickshaws will loot you. Be prepared if you are a new-comer. 4. City Bus Service You will have to haul your luggage half a mile to access the nearest city service bus. There is no bus service from near the airport. No directions, no help. 5. Tourism The help desk at the tourist counter is ill-equipped to provide tourist information, just like Karnataka Tourism headquarters itself. 6. We hope this will not happen when the new Bangalore International Airport opens in April 2008.

Unfriendly Behaviour

Nikhil Agrawal, June 7, 2007 at 7:20 am

Everyone at the Bangalore airport is unfriendly. There are no measurements to handle peak hours; no helpline, no AC inside. I can’t believe that this airport is able to survive so long. I hope after new international airport comes, this one will be closed for good.

My Thoughts

Kate Montgomery, April 27, 2007 at 9:05 pm

If you’re going to be waiting there a long time make sure to bring something to do; the waiting is boring because there isn’t much in the airport. If you have an early morning flight don’t be surprised if all of the security guards are asleep. Also, be sure to be there at least a couple of hours ahead of time, because they have a habit of changing departures. We had a flight from BLR to LHR scheduled at 6:00 AM. We arrived at three to find out that BLR decided to send it out at 4:00 AM! Fortunately the flight was delayed a few hours due to problems with the plane, so we wouldn’t be leaving until 6:00 AM.

A Very Good Airport In India

Venkat Das, October 15, 2006 at 11:52 am

The facilities are very good especially for the people who travell for the first time. An execellent care is taken until the passenger departs/arrives the airport.Will look pretty good once the complete construction is finalized.

Below Average Airport For The Silicon Valley Of India.

Nagraj Prabhu, July 8, 2006 at 8:23 am

This airport is managed by the Airport Authority of India on a HAL owned land. The infrastructure is very inadequate. Some of the Government staff on duty are lethargic. The security by CISF is remarkably good and they serve you with a smile. Since it is in the middle of the city, you have to plan very much in advance to travel to and fro the airport. A new internal airport is on its way; it might take another three to four years to complete though.

Hindustan Airport

Sreejith Kizhakkekkottillath, February 2, 2006 at 5:41 pm

This airport is an average one. The crowded transfers irritates one (The bus that carries the passengers to the airport complex and back). This airport is in the city. Traffic outside the airport is remarkably slow.
