Airport for sale at Puttaparthi – interesting?

In case you guys missed reading this story (Business-Standard 31st Oct), Sai Baba’s airport which is only 70 km from Devanahalli is up for sale. What if a big name corporation buys and develops this airport and the sorrounding region? Bad news for BIAL?It wouldn’t really create a Delhi vs Noida airport like situation because Bangalore doesn’t have a satellite region in that area yet. But two airports north of Bangalore may be an incentive for industries to shift there, and may help create a Noida like thing. A chance for Andhra Pradesh to cash in on Bangalore story?

Just a thought.
