Cheap Flights to Bengaluru Airport

Bengaluru (still commonly referred to by its former name of Bangalore) is one of India's most developed and cosmopolitan cities, thanks largely to it being the centre of the huge Indian IT industry. That status has earned it the nickname "The Silicon Valley of India" and you will indeed find office parks, shopping centres, and western shops and fast food restaurants that would not be out of place in any large North American city. That being said, beneath the glass and concrete exterior Bengaluru is still a quintessential Indian city with bustling markets and stunning historical architecture.

Bengaluru Airport (officially Kempegowda International Airport) is one of India's newest and busiest airports, with direct connections to cities all over the world. That makes catching a flight to Bengaluru rather easy and with Skyscanner's Whole Month search you can find out when the cheapest airfare to Bengaluru is available.

Airlines that Fly to Bengaluru Airport

Bengaluru Airport is the third busiest airport in India and is served by dozens of airlines. It is a hub or focus city for AirAsia India, Alliance Air, IndiGo, Jet Airways,  SpiceJet, and Air India, all of which provide frequent connections to airports throughout India. While there are no direct flights to Bengaluru from North America, a number of Asian airlines, including Cathay Dragon, Malaysia Airlines, SilkAir, Singapore Airlines,  and Thai Airways, have a strong presence here and provide good connections to Bangaluru through various East Asian cities. European and Middle Eastern airlines also provide excellent service, including Air France, British Airways, Emirates, Etihad, Lufthansa, and Qatar Airways.

What to Expect When Arriving at the Airport

Bengaluru Airport is about 40 km from the city centre, making accessibility a bit of an issue. While a metro line to the airport is being planned, for now you will have to get to Bengaluru itself by road. Unregistered taxis are available outside of the terminal, but you will need to negotiate a price beforehand and the taxi drivers are notorious for trying to rip off unsuspecting foreigners. A more reliable, if more expensive, option is to take a licensed Airport City Taxi which are metered or to arrange pickup with your hotel. There are also a number of car rental agencies at the airport and renting a car whilst in Bangalore may be a worthwhile option, although be prepared for the city's notorious traffic jams.

Airport Facilities

Bengaluru Airport opened in 2008 and it is undoubtedly one of India's most modern, cleanest, and well-maintained airports. Currently there is just one terminal handling both international and domestic flights, but a second terminal is currently under construction. There are plenty of dining and shopping options and Bengaluru Airport stands out for being particularly environmentally friendly, especially due to it being entirely solar powered.

What to See and Do in Bengaluru

While most visitors to Bengaluru are here on business, the city does have plenty of tourist sites to see as well. As one of the most important administrative centres during the time of the British Raj, there are plenty fantastic examples of ornate Victorian architecture. Bengaluru is also known as the Garden City and the Lalbagh Botanical Gardens are a great place for spending an afternoon. Hotels to fit any taste and budget can be found throughout Bengaluru and Skyscanner's hotel search can help you find a great place to stay.
