his extended shroud seems to cover the vehicle track and beyond which means it should keep the passengers dry ?
or is this only the VIP lane?

The new design tho aesthetic and "curvy" does not optimise the natural sunlight.

My first hand experience is what the above statments tells.  It has not done any thing except the capacity which was shortcoming in the first instance of the Airport opening during 2008 has been made up.  So its back to 2008 tragets meeting,  but passengers will be burdened with new UDF.

For the Passengers,  visitors, its not going to make any difference except the debris & cosntruction has been cleared  infront of the terminal.  Its only Architecture from the Aerial View and VIP area have been given due importance  in this.

Only thing is now GMR Reddy is asking  for opening the 2nd enterance to the ariport which is really good.

swank airport

Welcome back Photoyogi. Your pictorial contributions are already beginning to make PRAJA more exciting.

The airport was swank looking right from the beginning, and it's even more so today. Besides, with "Hatti Kaapi" stall offering excellent South Indian filter coffee at just Rs 15/- a cup, amongst other tasty bites, apart from "Halli Manae" stall too offering similar fare, the airport, I may add, has become more Aam Kannadiga friendly too.

All in all, a visit is generally a pleasant experience.

As the Complet Bangalore seeing the progress of METRO and HSRL fate,  GVK person would have ready many time  via print news media about the Commuter Rail. 

For GVK,  Nadaprabhu Kempegowda International Airport to be more patronized,  accessebility will play key role in coming years, with 6 years down the lane and still many years to realize either HSRL / METRO, 

As cost of reaching Airport increases day by day  thru  Travell time and travell cost,   GVK would have realized  how best option for next couple of years if Commuter Rail provides even basic connectivity upto Trumphet interchange,  they will be able to take the passengers to Terminal directly. 

Hope he puts pressure on  Ralway Minister & CM of Karnataka.
