Trivandrum (TRV) International Airport

Trivandrum International Airport (TIA) is the first Int'l Airport in Kerala, situated south west of Trivandrum City. Located just 10km from the city center it is also the base for Southern Air Command.

In 2007 April, construction commenced for the new state-of-the-art International Terminal on the city side, bringing the airport even more closer to the city. The futuristic Terminal, designed by Atkins (UK), is a scalable green building making use of the natural lighting and ventilation to the maximum.

Location Map

Here is an overview of where the proposed developments are taking shape.



The Yellow box (A) indicates the present terminal area, Terminal 1 and 2.

The Pink square is the site of the new terminal; it occupies a land area of 27 acres in Phase I. (B) The terminal lies just across the TS Canal (seen running parallel to the site) and directly accessible from the NH 47 Bypass Road.(E)

The Blue small square is Chakkai Jn on the Bypass.(C) A 6 lane flyover with two ramps, one connecting Chakkai and the other connecting Enchakkal Jn is under construction. The alignment of the flyover and approach road is denoted using the Brown line (D)

Progress of works

April 2007, the terminal area being barricaded. Image courtesy Ajay's blog


April 20th 2008
, the erection of steel frame of the Terminal commences after the initial land filling and other ground works. This work, understandably, has taken one year. See this SSC post by Ajay.

And now in September 2008, the erection of the steel skeleton has finished. The date for commissioning of the Terminal is March 2009.

Smile Latest updates

10 out of 19 of the massive main ribs for Phase I have been erected. Columns for Phase II are coming up on the Chackai side and piling has been completed on the other side.

Talking Look at the size of the damn thing....!!!

We can get a sense of the massive size of the terminal by comparing the size of the giant main rib with the minuscule figures standing next to it.

Whew, Ajay! This is a revelation! This structure seems to be as tall as a 5-6 storied building!! The perspectives never gave the indication of this being so tall!

And the length also seems to be misleading..If there are 9 more frames to go in the first phase then the structure will already be bigger than the present T-1 of TIA!!
