Kerala rains: Kochi airport resumes flight operations

Nearly two hours after stopping arrival operation at 1.10 pm, Cochin International Airport Limited (Cial) resumed all its operations at 3.05 pm on Thursday afternoon.
“We have assessed that the situation has improved and we are resuming all operations from 3.05 pm, Thursday,” said a Cial spokesperson.
The Cochin International Airport had stopped its arrival operation from 1.10pm about 40 minutes after a shutter of the Idukki dam was raised 50 cm at 12.30 pm on Thursday.
Nedumbassery, where the Airport is located, was one among the areas which was expected to be affected due to the inflow of water from the dams through the Periyar.
