Trichy airport is getting a good attention from Airlines and Cargo Operators for a good reason. It’s central location in the state and its proximity to many industrial and Agriculture center is encouraging the businesses to utilize this airport regularly has prompted the AAI to request the State government for 1000 more acres to expand the airport complex.
A new terminal will be added which will be adjacent to the existing one ( handling 500 people) and the runway will expanded to 12500 feet to handle bigger aircrafts. A cargo handling facility also will be added to the airport. There is no mention of how many additional people it can handle. But I hope it will certainly be much more keeping in mind the rapid expansion of the city’s business climate.
Looking at the potential and the efforts to improve the terminal, Air India Express is looking at adding a new service to AbuDhabi from Trichy in a couple of months.
Stay Tuned. Exciting times are ahead.
