NZ team impressed with Kochi airport

An 81-member delegation from New Zealand led by its Prime Minister John Key visited the upcoming international terminal at the Cochin International Airport at Nedumbassery on Thursday.

The delegation also inspected the Rs.100-crore baggage handling system and integrated inline explosive detection X-ray system which were installed by a New Zealand firm.

Addressing the media later, Mr. Key said Kochi had one of the most beautiful airports in the world. “The baggage and security systems installed at the airport here are among the most sophisticated facilities in the world,” he added. Mr. Key, accompanied by his spouse Bronagh Key and team members, went around the T-3 terminal where they were briefed by airport officials. They left for Indonesia by Thursday night. The visiting delegation had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Wednesday.
