Speaking to reporters after the inauguration, Bengaluru International Airport Managing Director G V Sanjay Reddy said, "We have created a master plan which will eventually lead us to having a total capacity of 55 million passengers per annum. Today's capacity is just around 13 million and with this terminal we have built a capacity of 20 million passengers."
"We need to build a second parallel runway and we need to build further terminals also. Those are currently under plan," he added.
