HAL, In the memoire….

Now that the May 23rd 2008 takes all commercial flights off HAL airport, after the great ‘fixing’ of the protests to keep it open HAL is finally set to rest, an article written by Mr. R K Mishra about this episode in todays times highlights the same…

The new airport is all set to put holes in the pockets of the travelers under UDF charges and roaring taxis that will clinch out few more hundreds, that’s the story now!! The infrastructure starving city is now getting hoaxed by this new ‘arrangement’ by and between few that would churn many closing the HAL airport…uhhhh!

Not sure if BIAL can come under RTI act as the share of govt together is more than 26%, why the drama of negotiations by and between govt entities which rather than imposing closure of HAL should work towards keeping it open to all low cost domestic flights, this would ensure those who can afford to fly by helicopter to reach BIAL and take premium flights and many others who will queue up at the gates to catch seats in low cost airlines with their lunch tiffin hand baggage!!

Finally to console myself, I look at few pictures of HAL & the airport kept on public display at HAL Aerospace Museum in the city …
