Bengaluru International Airport

Note that the old Bangalore Airport is no longer a big commercial center (I think it’s for military now) and Bengaluru Airport serves the Bangalore region.   Unfortunately  Bengaluru is about 19 miles from the city of Bangalore so you’ll need to find transportation back and forth and allow sometimes considerable extra time to make sure you make your flight.

Bengaluru International Airport (Kannada: ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ಅಂತಾರಾಷ್ಟ್ರೀಯ ವಿಮಾನ ನಿಲ್ದಾಣ) (IATA: BLRICAO: VOBL) is an international airport serving the city of Bangalore (Bengaluru), Karnataka, India. The airport is located 4 km (2.5 mi) south of Devanahalli and is 40 km (25 mi) from the central business district of Bengaluru (30 km (19 mi) from the Bangalore City Railway Station[1]) and covers 4,000 acres (1,600 ha).[3] It replaced the old HAL Bangalore International Airport. Construction of the airport began in July 2005, after a decade long postponement. It was expected to be inaugurated on 30 March 2008 but due to delays in air traffic control (ATC) services, it started its operations on the night of 23 May 2008, just before midnight. The airport is the 3rd busiest in India in terms of passenger traffic handling about 9.3 million passengers during 2008-09[4]and in air traffic movements (ATM) with about 300-310 movements per day in the year of 2009 after Delhi and Mumbai airports respectively.
