New International Terminal inauguration in February


The new international terminal being constructed at Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) will see the light of the day much ahead of its scheduled opening in May this year, thanks to the upcoming Assembly elections in Kerala.

Even though the opening of the new terminal was planned in May 2016, it has been decided to inaugurate the new terminal in February itself along with a commercial complex and the new four-lane road to the Airport which includes a new rail overbridge. Only 80 per cent of the works of the new terminal have been completed and various electrical and mechanical works are still going on at the terminal.

The new 15 lakh square feet international terminal being built at a cost of Rs 1,000 crore will have state-of-the-art facilities.
