Calicut to have aviation refuelling station

Kozhikode: Close on the heels of its acquiring international status, Karipur Airport is set to have the third aviation refuelling station, with Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) entering the scene after IOC (Indian Oil Corporation) and HPCL.
The ‘bhoomi puja’ of the Rs 2-crore project was held at the airport on Tuesday. “The station would have a fuel capacity of 400 kilo litre and it would be commissioned by the end of September, 2006,” BPCL’s aviation business head S.P.Mathur said at a press conference held later.
This would be the third such facility being set up in the state by the BPCL after the state of the art hydrant refuelling station at Nedumbassery, where it holds equity stake, and the one at Thiruvananthapuram.
