Travel time from Bengaluru city to its airport will be completed within 10 min.

According to reports, the Hyperloop could transport thousands of passengers per hour from the city to the airport in ten minutes with speed going up to 1,080 km per hour.

The nuisance of distance between the Bengaluru city and its airport might soon be resolved as Virgin Hyperloop and Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) on Sunday signed a first-of-its-kind Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) leader to conduct a study on the feasibility for a proposed Hyperloop corridor between the Bengaluru city and Kempegowda International Airport.

This proposed hyperloop can reduce the travel time from more than one hour drive to just 10 minutes in future through Hyperloop.

According to reports, the Hyperloop could transport thousands of passengers per hour from the city to the airport in ten minutes with speed going up to 1,080 km per hour.

The initial study focusing on the technical, economic and route feasibility is expected to complete in two phases of six months each.

“At BIAL, our vision is to make the Bengaluru Airport the new gateway to India by transforming it as a transportation hub. We are excited to take this landmark step which can catalyse the economic growth of the state of Karnataka and the region. Technological innovation is key to building and sustaining a world-class transportation hub, and this study is an important step forward,” Hari Marar, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of BIAL, reportedly said.

“This mode of transportation offers enormous economic potential, connecting passengers at unprecedented speeds, with zero emissions,” he added.

The MoU was virtually exchanged on Sunday between Sultan bin Sulayem, Chairman of Virgin the Hyperloop and DP World, and TM Vijay Bhaskar, Chief Secretary, Government of Karnataka and Chairman of the Board of Directors at BIAL.
