Not sure I understand this map. Will see if I can find a higher resolution one. What is ADVA parking and Domestic parking? ADVA is for those who only want to see the jets flying, and Domestic parking is for business visitors and general visitors who want to visit the static display?

Also, the regular route from mekhri circle- hebbal- etc. cannot be taken?

TIA

And Bangalore Mirror reports on the new road to BIAL:
"New KIA road is promising, but it is far from complete"

Well, I just took that route and came back smoothly. There is heavy police presence and I shudder to think what will happen from tomorrow if they ban all vehicles except BMTC buses beyond Hebbal.

What exactly does Public Vehicle mean?!

I guess they mean all yellow board? A tleast white boards are generally called private vehicles. But definitely a vague statement either by the newspaper or by the authorities. I am also planning to take this highway tomorrow towards Anantapur, not sure if its going to be a problem.

A large concrete mixer truck (4 axles) has toppled in front of the firestation on Sarjapur Road, blocking much of the carriageway towards Sarjapur. Those who take this road to Wipro etc. and as a short cut to Electronic City need to be aware and evaluate their alternatives.

posting what BTP posted on FB. It doesnt explicity say that private cars will not be allowed on Hebbal - Airport route. I would suggest that you do budget extra time to allow for various VIP movements etc. which would happen on that route or take the suggested alternate routes.

Thanks. I have yet to purchase my tickets. Was thinking of Friday. If i do purchase, might leave my house (from JP Nagar) by 6.30/ 7.00 am. There was a tweet from BTP that mentioned that 5 lac tickets have been sold (though it did not provide a breakup by days). This large number is making me think twice, if its better to sit back at home and relax.

From what I heard on the streets this morning, there are no major detours or stopping of any specific type of vehicles on the new Airport road. Don't think there is a ban on private vehicles. But traffic police is actively looking for vehicles stopped on the road side, and they would get towed away immediately. That may stop the people from parking vehicles on the road side and move away to watch the jets flying in & out.

True, from what I read in the news papers some of these VIPs may also be moving in the city areas, which means that there could be road blocks in city area as well (not just on Hebbal, Yelahanka side).

This is almost similar to what happens during every air show, nothing to be worried about.
More so, since you are planning on Fri, Sunday afternoon is usually the peak time. During earlier air shows, I had visited on Sat morning or afternoon on all occasions apart from once which was on Sunday. The Sunday one was worse with crowded BMTC buses and chaos.

Regarding the parking query you had posted. I am not sure of the current setup, but the parking on left side is for near the entry to Rs 600 tickets. For the Rs 1500 / business tickets you need to cross air field and proceed towards Devanahalli airport, take U turn and park the vehicle inside air force campus.

There will be shuttle bus from there which takes you to the entry gate through a underpass below the airport road.

Just make sure you start early to avoid weekday crowd enroute.

This time 18th Saturday is the concluding day, no Sunday mentioned in the schedules. Parking areas is same for many years as you pointed out. Personally, I would never visit that space again after my 1st and last visit back in 2011 ! I was sick for a week with the dust that I had breathed in kilos ! Previous year, my neighbor took his kids in spite of my warning and they were hospitalized for 5 days Unfortunately, they had to park their car 2 kms away from the venue and walk all the way in the heat and dust !

The best way to enjoy this show is finding a colleague or friend or family living around Yelahanka, Jakkur or within the 5 kms radius. If they are on a high rise building (anything above 3 floors), you have an added bonus of a clean view.

^^ Agree about the dust part if you are visiting with Rs 600 ticket. The business ticket doesn't have dust issue since its near aircraft hangers, hence floor is asphalted.

Any info on the area where you land up with the 1500 tickets? Dust is a big problem for me as well. I remember going in 2011 - it was a royal mess with the 500 tickets.

And is it safe to take the car as well? Last time I had to walk a good 30 mins to reach the gates after collecting the tickets.

Do they allow kids in the 1500 rupee area ? Else can only go to the general area. Watching the flying formation etc is not an issue for the general area.
