SP's Airbuz - - News Briefs -

A study ‘ Bench­mark­ing of Ac­ces­si­bil­ity and Con­nec­tiv­ity of In­dian Air­ports’ by New Delhi-based School of Plan­ning and Ar­chi­tec­ture (SPA) showed that the two South In­dian air­ports, Hyderabad and Ben­galuru, are the most eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble among the fa­cil­i­ties in six met­ros of the coun­try while the na­tional cap­i­tal finds a place at the bot­tom of the list.

The ac­ces­si­bil­ity rate was cal­cu­lated in the study con­ducted by SPA by tak­ing the av­er­age of time taken dur­ing non-peak and peak traf­fic.

As per the study, one of the rea­sons for Ben­galuru airport far­ing bet­ter is due to its lo­ca­tion in the out­skirts and is con­nected to the city by an el­e­vated ex­press­way. Hyderabad tops the list mainly be­cause of the ded­i­cated cor­ri­dor to the airport. The study finds that reach­ing the air­ports in Hyderabad and Ben­galuru by car is the best among the six met­ros. The con­nec­tiv­ity of air­ports through pub­lic trans­port is bet­ter in Mumbai, Hyderabad and Ben­galuru com­pared to New Delhi, Kolkata and Chen­nai. Delhi finds a place at the last po­si­tion in the study of 60 metro and non-metro air­ports in terms of ac­ces­si­bil­ity while Hyderabad is at third po­si­tion, Ben­galuru is at sev­enth, Chen­nai 46th and Kolkata 59.
