Thiruvananthapuram international airport handles 100 additional flights from Kochi

Thiruvananthapuram: Thiruvananthapuram international airport rose to the occasion and handled 100 additional flights that were diverted following the closure of the Cochin international airport due to flooding of the taxiway.
The additional flights bound for Kochi were handled by the airport authorities in addition to the scheduled flight that reached the premier airport of the State.
The personnel of the airline, customs and immigration worked over time to cater to the needs of the flyers who arrived from various destinations and who came to board these flights.
The constraints in the conveyor belts on account of the ongoing work led to a minor delay and this was overcome by the airline ground staff. The flyers also cooperated with the airline staff and the airport personnel to get quick service.
The airport personnel led by director C.V. Ravindran handled the wide-bodied aircraft of national carrier Air India, Emirates and Ethiad.
The additional international flights handled were those operated by Fly Dubai, Kuwait Airways, Oman Air, Qutar Airways, Indigo, Spicejet, Etihad, Air India, Air India Express and Air Air Arabia.
