BIAL procures Mediterranean flora & fauna

Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), operator of Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru, (KIAB/ BLR Airport), has embarked upon a journey to make BLR Airport a one-stop location for exotic, endangered and endemic species of flora and fauna. BIAL has imported the exotic Mediterranean trees and plants from Spain and Italy. This includes world-renowned Dragon Trees (Dracaena Draco) and Cupressus varieties.

After a 10-week voyage from Europe, followed by a two-day road trip from Mumbai, the trees and plants, packed in temperature-controlled containers, arrived in Bengaluru in good health. All the plants and trees will be kept in a greenhouse for 10 weeks to acclimatise to the local weather and soil conditions, before they are moved to their respective locations. The arrival of this consignment marks the beginning of the process of acquiring exotic, rare, endangered and threatened flora and fauna from across the world.

Prasannamurti Desai, Head – Landscaping, BIAL said, “BIAL has always focused on maintaining aesthetic green spaces – right from the inception of BLR Airport. The gardens at the Airport are one of our most outstanding features, and passengers have now come to expect this natural beauty when they pass through the Airport. In keeping with Bengaluru’s image as the Garden City of India, BIAL is working to reflect this image at the Airport by creating world-class landscapes. This will ensure that our landscape endorses the building of biodiversity and sustainability, in keeping with the garden-themed Terminal 2.”
