History

Originally set up by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) mainly for defence purposes, operations were extended for domestic commercial flights in the 1980s while the airport started to serve international destinations in 1997.

In the late 1990s, friction started to arise between the Airport Authority of India (AAI) and Hindustan Aeronautics. AAI wanted more control over airport management which HAL refused to citing national security concerns. The HAL airport is the site of much of HAL's test and research facility. Currently, more than 50% of the Indian Air Force fleet consists of aircraft manufactured by HAL.

In 2005, AAI finally started construction on new Bangalore International Airport (BIA). Once complete, BIA will replace HAL airport as Bangalore's international and domestic airport while HAL airport will serve only as a test and research facility for HAL.

The Hindu : Traffic at HAL Airport will continue to be high (409 words)
HAL had opposed the airport's closure, an issue that had kept the State Government on tenterhooks for long.
Though HAL relented on the airport closure issue and helped in resolving the contentious integrated airspace management issue, a technical aspect related to the closure has become the latest irritant for the much-delayed Devanahalli project.
The State Government has reportedly objected to the framing of a clause related to the closure of the HAL Airport for commercial operation in the draft Concession Agreement (CA), which was cleared by the Centre on January 20.
Private airlines still prefer HAL Airport-Bangalore-Cities-The Times of India (405 words)
One of the hurdles to keeping HAL Airport open is the commitment given to Bangalore International Airport Ltd (BIAL) that no other international airport would be approved within a radius of 150 km of the new airport.
The suggestion is that HAL Airport could initially be one for regional flights, and later grow to accommodate more varied flights.
HAL, in the meantime, is getting many proposals for the airport.
