KARNATAKA is to finalise its partner for the international airport project by June according to the Chief Minister, Mr S.M. Krishna: ``The international airport building is being taken up and the airport will strengthen Bangalore's primacy on the interna tional map''.

In about 30 months from the selection of the partner, Bangalore will have its private sector international airport, said Mr Krishna. He was speaking at the foundation stone-laying ceremony of Vysya Bank's corporate office here today.

International airlines such as Lufthansa, Malaysian and Singapore Airlines were requested to route their flights to and from Bangalore to Europe and the East and West coasts of the US, he said.

The special task force for the Bangalore International Airport Ltd, headed by the Infosys Chairman, Mr N.R. Narayana Murthy, had been pushing for such international flights to and out of Bangalore.
