Bangaluru Airport In a mess

The new Bangalore airport is located some 40 kms away from the city in Devenhalli. The congested roads and the increasing traffic on the roads is making it the least preferred option for the people to travel. although the Airport had all world class facilities, capacity of handling 10 million passenger in a year. It has 50 ckeck in counters and there are no x-ray machines to screen the bags but the public is suffering because of the distance they have to cover on the road to catch a flight.

Passenger end up spending 3-4 hours travelling to and fro to the airport to catch a 1 hour flight. I wonder the land for the proposed airport was decided long back and it dint strike anybody's mind that distance could be a problem. More details are here.
