Kochi airport to reopen today after 15-day shutdown

On Wednesday, the CIAL or Cochin International Airport is set to resume operations after the 15-day shutdown due to flooding.


The airport stopped its operations from August 14 after the floods devastated the state.



The airport authorities had first announced the shuttering of the facility till August 18, which was then extended to August 26 and further to August 29 as water levels continued to rise inundating the runway, the terminals as well as the large solar farm surrounding the airport.


“Jet Airways will resume its scheduled operations to Cochin International Airport (CIAL) from August 29. The airline’s first flight to Kochi (9W 0403 from Mumbai) is scheduled to arrive at 15:50 hrs,” Jet Airways said in a statement.
