CM Pinarayi Vijayan opens 1st anniversary celebrations of Kannur airport

Kannur: Chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan has said people’s participation is the success of any development project, and hence the residents here and non-resident Malayalis should come forward to invest in Kannur International Airport (Kial) and surrounding areas.

Inaugurating the first anniversary celebrations of the airport on Monday, he also said there is immense scope for development after the airport became a reality and it would get a further boost once Azhikkal Port is also developed.
“The steps to start industries related to the aviation as well as non-aviation sectors are progressing and they would be realized soon,” he said, adding that the land acquisition is going on.

Meanwhile, in order to fully tap the development opportunities, the roads to the airport should also be developed and the efforts are going on in that direction as well, he added.

The new flight service by GoAir to Dammam will start on December 19 while Air India has come forward to operate service to Jeddah, he said.

Though many foreign airlines have expressed their interest to start flight service from here, unfortunately the airport has not received the nod from the Union civil aviation ministry despite the efforts made by the state government and Kial, he added.
