Earlier this month we stayed The Park in Bangalore. This hotel that was constructed from an era 20 years ago appears to have never been refurbished and it’s disappointing to see that it participates in the SPG program.
Bangalore Airport, by March 2018, intends to provide biometric access from the entry gate to the boarding gate for domestic flights. Later in the year, it would go live for international flights as well. Here is the gameplan.
