planning a trip - cochin international airport


Covering an area of 1200 acres, this is the first International Airport in the country outside the domain of the Government of India. Sited at Nedumbassery, the Cochin International Airport is an innovative undertaking in the history of civil aviation in India where the Government of Kerala, the travelling public, Non-Resident Indians, financial organizations, Airport Service Providers and others have joined hands in the equity structure. 

The Airport site is very close and centrally located to all three National Highways passing through Kerala (NH 47, NH 17, NH 49). The main Railway line from Kanyakumari to Delhi is adjacent to the airport, and so is the Cochin Sea Port.
