Five sites identified for new airport

Five sites have been shortlisted in Pathanamthitta and Kottayam districts for a Rs.2,500-crore greenfield international airport to be developed by a joint venture of Non-Resident Indians.

Close on the heels of abandoning the controversial airport project at Aranmula in Pathanamthitta district, the New-Delhi-based Global Indian Association (GIA), a non-political organisation working for the welfare of NRIs, has approached the State government seeking in-principle approval for the aeropolis. The GIA has floated a company, Indo-Heritage International Aeropolis Pvt. Ltd., for executing the project and opened its office in Pathanamthitta.

The site selection report of the AECOM, global provider of technical and support services to airport owners, investors and aviation clients, has been submitted to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. The U.S.-based AECOM is the technical consultant for Kannur International Airport
