The relationship between Bangaloreans and their airport is bittersweet, with the never-ending commute being the bitter part and the beautiful garden-themed terminal and swanky eateries being the sweet. However, Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) is set to become India’s first Multi-Modal Transport Hub (MMTH) similar to Zurich and Heathrow. This means that passengers can expect seamless connectivity between buses, metro, and cabs to and from the airport. The MMTH will integrate the metro and bus station under one roof, making it a unique feature compared to Chennai airport’s separate connectivity.
The Multi-Modal Transport Hub (MMTH) at Bangalore airport will provide ample parking space for private cars and taxis, along with a baggage sorting area and a retail space. The integration of metro and bus stations will make commuting to and from Bangalore Airport more convenient.
