Facilities and Expectations

K. Ramalingam, Regional Executive Director (Southern Region), Airports Authority of India, had gone on record, that except for immigration facilities, all other infrastructure was available at the airport and, if required, officials could be diverted from Tiruchirapalli and Thiruvananthapuram. But he made it clear that the request for upgrading should come from the airlines[1] estion mark? Making this as International Airport will serve thousands of people who are travelling abroad.

The airport has appointed Axis Bank and Vienna airport consortium to study the feasibility of city side development to earn non-aeronautical revenue.
