Chaos At Bengaluru Airport
Amid the celebration of Republic Day, residents are planning for a long weekend holiday. This caused a large number of people to gather at Bengaluru Airport on Wednesday. Further, many had to wait outside in long queues, just to enter the airport. This caused confusion at security check-in and luggage drop areas. And people were frustrated, to say the least. Moreover, some of them lost their flights even after coming two hours early. On top of it, techno-savvy DigiYatra was not working efficiently.
This pent-up frustration was evident on social media platforms where people wrote about the mismanagement by airport authorities. However, Bangalore International Airport Limited had warned about heightened security due to Republic Day. Passengers’ desperation to get on their flights was evident.
About The New Terminal T2
The newly inaugurated Terminal 2 had begun operating on the 15th of January, 2023, despite its inauguration on the 11th of November. According to the authorities, the terminal is only for domestic flights, with Star Air operating at present. Moreover, they had planned to gradually start more flights.
