Trichy airport expansion program plans started way before, think, 1991, and at that time, was decided to re-route Trichy-Pudukkottai highway. But, however, subsequent change of governments, had kept changing plans in the interest of politicians self. Thus, at that point of time, KK nagar kept expanding, with the increase in population, and finally which, started occupying the areas planned for Trichy airport use.

Therefore, the main problem here, is basically no master planning of cities in general, that eventually leads to unwarranted commotions, and undue delays in implementing basic major infrastructure projects.

Well, hopefully could resolve all current problems being faced by the villagers, as well as, AAI. Otherwise, suggest to have a new World Class greenfield airport, located along Trichy-Madurai highway, thus, avoid the need of converting Madurai airport into International airport, and hence, being prudent in the expenditure, people's sentiment and long term view in mind.

Well, wondering about Air Deccan's plan for Trichy, since, stopped all operations nearly a month now. Are they planning to cancel Trichy-Chennai route, since, was told by the Trichy airport staffs, that the flight is always close to full. Maybe, could be lack of aircraft, due to maintenance?

Air Arabia and Malaysian airlines to start service to Trichy

Air Arabia is planing to connect Trichy soon and Malaysian airlines would start operations after the completion of the termnial work. So, in a sense malaysian will not start until June 2008 when the new terminal is anticipated to open.

Well, whatever may be the reason, they cant compromise on Security protocol. AAI just woke up after the traffic started increasing in Trichy airport.

Is AIE flights to Abudhabi/Kulalampur starting from Mumbai? This will be really good as Trichy will get a local connection to Mumbai. It makes sense for Mumbai-Trichy-Kula-Trichy-Mumbai and dont know how Abudhabi would fit in.

I really dont know whats happening with Air Deccan flights to Trichy. They have been operating limited service to Trichy for the past few months. I think it could be due to lack of aircraft and understand from July 10 the service would be normal as airdeccan has new aircrafts now.

It will be good if malaysian starts the service early, so we get connections to the US and europe.

Heard of the service starting from Mumbai, and probably, may follow the same current style as Trichy-Dubai-Trichy, Trichy-Singapore-Trichy. Well, lets see.

Perhaps, letting AIE to operate the Trichy-KL route first for the time being, until the Trichy market gets matured by then. The same may aply for Silk Air to Singapore, who has been eyeing this Trichy market for some time now.

In that case Abudhabi would be via Mumbai like singapore via chennai. Going through mumbai is really awful.

When there is a potential it should be tapped rather wait. With malaysian and silk air we have options to connect to US and europe while AIE will serve for the local population.Anyway, Silk air has dropped the plan to Trichy and would be connecting coimbatore.

Has Silk Air dropped plans for Trichy? Surprising, since, officials from Silk Air came visiting Trichy airport, sometime in 2004, and express interest in operating there, once the runway extension is complete. Maybe, I think could be using low cost carrier Tiger airways to connect Trichy instead? Definitely, Singapore government would not want to miss the opportunity in connecting to Trichy, since, command immense potential traffic.

LCA Tejas in Tiruchirapalli? I thought Tanjavur has an airforce base.

I know Trichy - singapore/malaysia is potential market, but not tapped efficiently. If Trichy airport extension work was completed 2 years before, Trichy would have made more development now.
