Airport sees 21% rise in passenger traffic

The Cochin International Airport saw a passenger traffic of 74.17 lakh during the whole of 2015, compared to the 61.05 lakh passengers during the previous year. This is an increase of 21 per cent.

Twenty-four airlines have their operations in Kochi and the airport saw a total of 56,196 aircraft movements during the last financial year, said a statement issued by Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) here on Tuesday.

The considerable size in passenger traffic prompted the airport authorities to build the new international terminal, which will be officially inaugurated on Friday.
The Cochin international airport occupies the fourth position in the country in terms of international passengers and the seventh spot in terms of total passenger traffic.
