New International airport in Kannur may boost tourism in Mysuru

According to a report in The Hindu, the tourism industry in Mysuru and Kodagu is hoping for a surge in tourist footfall for the Kannur International Airport, a greenfield airport in Kerala, which will be inaugurated for flight operations shortly.

According to tour and travel operators here, some section of tourists wishing to visit Mysuru and Madikeri may opt to travel via Kannur airport instead of Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport.

Mysuru Travels Association (MTA) has been invited by the authorities for a tour of the greenfield airport.

Confirming this, MTA president B.S. Prashanth said that tour and travel operators from Mysuru will soon be visiting Kannur to take a look at the facilities at the airport.

“Mysuru is the transit route to Madikeri. Once the airport becomes operational, Kodagu may become the new transit zone to Mysuru if tourists prefer flying to Kannur instead of Bengaluru,” he said.
