The three trains will be in addition to the four pairs of trains that were already running before the lockdown.
The South Western Railways (SWR) division has proposed to run three more pairs of trains to the Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru from the city. The recently built halt station, which is located 5 kilometres away from the airport, is ready for use, it added. The three trains will be in addition to the four pairs of trains that were already running before the lockdown. These trains are mostly targeted for the staff who work at the international airport, in addition to the passengers

three trains have been proposed to run from Majestic (Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna Bengaluru Railway Station), Yehalanka and Yeshwanthpur. Once operational, the trains to the airport station from Majestic are likely to start at 4.45 am and 7 am while the train from Yehalnka will be leaving at 7 am. 
“We have sought approval from the Railway Board, Ministry of Railways in New Delhi, to run these new trains after having a detailed discussion with the airport management. They have suggested these timings will help the staff at the airport the most,” E Vijaya, Deputy General Manager, SWR, told TNM. She suggested that the approval might come only following the next set of Unlock guidelines issued by the Union Minister of Home Affairs with regards to the pandemic.
The airport halt station at the edge of the airport campus is built with funding provided by Bangalore International Airport Limited, the company that manages the airport. Although the four pairs of trains were running before the lockdown, the halt station was not ready. The work was completed in September. The commuters to the airport, including the staff, will be taken to the terminal in shuttle buses by the airport authority.
With this, commuters can reach the airport with only Rs 10 from Yehlanka and Rs 30 from Majestic.
Vijaya also said under the current infrastructure, no more trains can be introduced in that section.
Notably, with the dedicated suburban rail finally getting approved by the Union government, commuters are expected to reach the airport terminal directly on a train by the end of 2023.

Work on electrification of Yelahanka-Devanahalli railway line is progressing. Those heading to the airport can expect an electric train in the near future. The South Western Railways (SWR) have taken up an electrification project which would facilitate introduction of an electric train to the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) halt station.
As of now, the track from Bengaluru City to Yelahanka and Yeshwantpur-Yelahanka is electrified, but the trains between Yelahanka and KIA halt station are diesel locomotives.
A senior railway official told Bangalore Mirror, “The work of electrification between Yelahanka and Devanahalli

is going on and likely to be completed by February next year. The biggest hurdle is the KPTCL power line over the railway line at the 14th km. It is too low and poses danger to the trains. We are holding talks with KPTCL on increasing the height of the power lines. Post-February, once the electrification is done, the line will be subjected to inspection by Commission of Railway Safety and approval by the railway board would pave way for introduction of electric trains.”
Chief Public Relations Officer and Deputy General Manager, SWR E Vijaya said the project was part of electrification of the 149 -km railway line from Yelahanka to Bangarpet via Chikkaballapur, Sidlaghatta, Chintamani, Srinivaspur and Kolar. “The project was sanctioned in the financial year 2018-19 at a cost of Rs 138.21 crore and is executed by Central Organisation for Railway Electrification. Currently, work is in progress on the 23-km stretch between Yelahanka and Devanahalli and it was to be completed in June 2021. The tentative deadline for Devanahalli-Bangarapet stretch was pegged at March 2022.”
Prakash Mandoth (President-Bengaluru Metro and Suburban passengers’ association) welcomed the move. “This was a long-pending demand. While airports across the world are connected by trains, we don’t have any train connectivity so far. The Metro is also far away. Once electrified, there will be a provision of running a 16-car MEMU train which will be double the capacity and also be a faster train. And this is an eco-friendly option too. But, we the Railways must complete the project in a time-bound manner.” Shatrunjay Sharan, who goes to the airport often says both buses and cabs to the airport are expensive. “We hope the train will provide seamless travel to the airport at a comparatively lower cost.”
KIA halt station
The railway board is yet to finally approve trains to the KIA halt station though the station has been ready for a few months now. “These are the new services proposed: From Majestic (departure at 4.45 am and 9 pm) to Devanahalli, Yelahanka (departure 7 am) to Devanahalli. The return services are from Devanahalli to Yelahanka, Majestic and Bengaluru Cantonment (6.30 am, 7.45 am and 10.30 pm). All approvals are awaited. These six are new trains apart from eight already running in the section for which stoppages will be provided at KIA station,” said Vijaya.

A dedicated airport train exclusively for air passengers could become a reality by March 2021. Electrification of the railway line linking the new halt station at Kempegowda International Airport with the city will enable this, making it a potential game-changer.
Ready to be commissioned within the next few weeks, the KIA halt station will initially benefit the over 28,000 airport employees once passenger trains resume operation. But the real shift in airport connectivity from road to rail for air passengers is likely once the line is electrified and MEMU (Mainline Electric Multiple Unit) trains begin operation on the track.
The

tendering process for the electrification of the 26-km line is already on. Fast-tracking this project would mean MEMU trains can run up to and beyond the halt station from Kengeri, Hosur, Whitefield, Baiyappanahalli, and Tumakuru. South Western Railways (SWR), Bengaluru Division, has a good number of MEMUs to make this happen.
The Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), which built the halt station, has already announced that it will operate shuttle buses not only to the multiple work areas within the KIA campus, but also the terminals.
Dedicated airport trains with three to four rakes and an air-conditioned coach could initially attract air passengers with light luggage.
This is considered the best rail alternative to an airport metro line, which is likely to be commissioned only after 2024.
Since electrification and automatic signaling have gained traction across the city, airport-bound passengers could board such dedicated trains from Baiyappanahalli, Yeshwantpur, KSR or Cantonment stations.
Doddajala upgrade
Critical to the electrification and introduction of more trains on the line is a crossing station at Doddajala, complete with signaling and an extended one-km platform. It is learnt that the South Western Railways (SWR) has sent a proposal to the Railway Board to sanction Rs 10 crore for the project.
An upgraded Doddajala station will also help employees commute faster to the Aerospace Park and other adjoining areas, as urban mobility analyst Sanjeev Dyamannavar put it.
“It is about six kms from the station. People can take share taxis from the station to their work areas,” he explained.
The upgrade is the bare minimum required to ensure the practical frequency of trains on the 24-km Yelahanka-Devanahalli route, which is a single track with only halt stations in between, Rajkumar Dugar from Citizens for Citizens noted. “Of course, ideally, the track should be doubled. But we can’t wait for that to happen.”

Instead of spending crores for airport metro, all concerned should direct their efforts to run dedicated trains from SBC YPR KJM to airport. SBC YPR have metro connection. KJM is going to get metro shortly. Why to waste huge amount for airport metro and create inconvenience to public for 4 years?

Just weeks away from operationalising a railway halt station at the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA), the airport operator inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the South Western Railway (SWR) via video conference on Tuesday. 
Signed by Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) and the SWR in the presence of Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa and Minister of State for Railways Suresh Angadi, the MoU puts an official stamp on the innovative model of financing for the halt station.  Nearing completion, the halt station is being built by BIAL and will be handed over to the railways for operation and maintenance. “BIAL will provide free shuttle service from the halt station to the terminal and other parts of the airport, as per the

schedule of the train services,” a spokesperson said. 
The station is expected to offer a cheaper and faster rail alternative to bus connectivity to the airport. Thousands of airport workers, local villagers and even passengers are expected to benefit from the station and the trains to be introduced on the line later. Traffic on the airport road is also likely to be decongested once more trains are operated on the line. 
Angadi had this to say: “There have been relentless efforts of all agencies of the state and central governments, and various stakeholders, including BIAL, working in tandem towards the dream of improving public transport infrastructure. This will boost our economy and facilitate growth.”  SWR General Manager Ajay Kumar Singh said the railways was open to all innovative transport. The airport connectivity, he said, is a game-changer wherein road, rail and air are being networked for ease of movement. 
BIAL Managing Director and CEO Hari Marar said the station was part of addressing the increasing need for seamless travel options to the airport, and facilitate optimal use of facilities at the KIA.
