And with the upcoming Vizhinjam port, which is only 20 kms away from Trivandrum, it will bring in more footfalls passenger traffic to the airport.

Trivandrum is also the academic hub of Kerala with the presence of top institutions of science and technology like ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization), Vikram Sarabhai Space Center (VSSC), etc., that receives many academicians and students into the city, bringing in more traffic.

The newly built Terminal 2 has three additional jetways and parking bays to accommodate eight aircrafts.
