The Indian state of Kerala owns two international airports - Cochin and Trivandrum. Each of them is ready to receive passengers and serve them with high quality.
Cochin Airport, also known as Kochi Airport, is located in the city of Nedumbasseri. It ranks first in Kerala in terms of passengers served per year.
The airport is operated by the Indian company CIAL. Cochin Airport is located 30 km from the center of the city of the same name. The airport is surrounded by tourist areas, so it is very attractive for tourists. In addition, there are areas suitable for airport expansion..
Kochi Airport has one runway that can accommodate any aircraft, including the largest airliner, the Airbus A380. Runway length is 3400 meters.
The airport uses two terminals, one for domestic flights and the other for international flights. At the moment, a project is being implemented to expand the commercial zone - a business center, a hypermarket, a hotel, etc. will be built..
There are several ways to get from the airport to Cochin. The most popular among tourists is the taxi. There are also buses from the airport to the city..
The second airport in Kerala is located in the city of Thiruvananthapuram, or rather 6 km from its center. Also not far from the airport, 16 km away, is the famous resort of Kovalam.
