Kempegowda International Airport Bengaluru (KIAB) in India has served its 100 millionth passenger, reaching the historic milestone in less than eight years of operation.

Commenting on the landmark, GV Sanjay Reddy, managing director of Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), which operates the airport, said, “This is a very special moment for all of us at BIAL. The achievement comes within eight years of operations and is testimony of our ability to meet the rapid demand and growth of the domestic and international air traffic.

“This recognition would not have been possible without the collective showcase of passion and perseverance of the KIAB workforce to create an unparalleled experience for our passengers.”

The airport served 100 million passengers between May 2008 and March 2016, and is India’s third biggest airport. In March 2015, KIAB was classified as a mid-sized airport when it clocked 15 million passengers in 2014 and it handled 18.1 million passengers in 2015. Approximately 52,000 passengers transit through KIAB every day.
