Bangalore : As Yelahanka airbase would require clear airspace for Aero Show 2009 in February, where it will showcase the latest in the field of military and civil aircraft, Bengaluru International Airport has offered support to ensure there is no criss-crossing of flights by restricting commercial operations during the show from February 11 to 15.
Marcel Hungerbuehler, chief operating officer of Bengaluru International Airport said: "The Aero India show exemplifies the new opportunities made available in the civil aviation sector and the need for creating a knowledge pool to share expertise in the research and development of aircraft. We are happy to support the 2009 Aero India show and will make necessary operational provisions to ensure the success of the show."
For the period during the event practice and rehearsals held from February 7-10, 2009, BIA will halt commercial operations from 10:00 hrs to 12:00 hrs. Similarly, during the actual event scheduled between February 11-15, 2009, the airport will refrain from commercial operations between the show timings -- 10:00 am to 12:00 noon and 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm. This is in lieu of the airspace required for the show at the adjacent Air Force Station, Yelahanka.
Scheduled aircraft operations will be impacted and the airlines have received communication on reduced operating hours.
Passenger convenience will be ensured with the respective airlines sharing timely communication on the change in airport operations and the cancelled/revised flight timings during the duration of the air show.
