Terminal 2 of Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport, which was constructed at a cost of Rs 13,000 crore, commenced its international flight operations on September 12th. All scheduled international flights have been operating from Terminal 2 since 10:45 AM.

Former Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai stated that with the inauguration of Terminal 2, Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport (KIAL) has become the second-largest airport in India. The airport began its operations on May 24, 2008, and in 2019, it served over 33 million passengers.
The official statement from Bengaluru airport authorities advised passengers traveling on international flights to or from BLR (Bengaluru) Airport on September 12th to take note of the change, with all departing and arriving international flights relocating to Terminal 2 starting at 10:45 AM on that day. Passengers were encouraged to check with their airlines for detailed flight information and schedules.
