Kochi airport closed down

Kochi:  The flood waters entered the drainage near the operations side and spread to the parking bay.
Following this, the landing stopped at 1.05 pm. The Indigo flight from Mumbai was diverted to Coimbatore, and a Spice Jet flight returned to Bangalore. An Oman Air flight from Muscat was diverted to Thiruvananthapuram.
Of these, the Oman flight later landed in Kochi. However, a passenger who arrived at the airport in the afternoon to go to Chennai by an evening Spicejet flight said that he had to take the road route after the airline staff informed him that no plane was taking off and landing at the airport.
