Airport in Nellai

I dont see any need for an Airport in Tirunelveli. People should start patronising vagaikulam air services as it would benefit both Nellai and its siter city Tuticorin.

We need a dedicated airport in tirunelveli.

Many people not at all thinking to go to vagaikulam since it is in Tuticorin district.

Poor infrastructure and transport facility.


Only one flight is operating. From this we can know how popular it is.
We should not blame Tuticorin airport. soon it will get its time.

Who are these "Many People" ? Your own thinking ?
Why should people hesitate to visit Tuticorin ? After all Nellai is the Mother District, just like Trivandrum is for the Kumari.

I too feel the same.... Once upon a time(1980) both Nellai and Tuti are same dist. If we go by bus it will take just 45min to reach tuti from nellai. And the Airport will take nearly 35 min alone. This is not a big issue... What we want is we need more connectivity. Like city buses....

And we are having 4lane connectivity... Tuti Airport should have to be improved runway has to be extended,. And need to have the capability of handling night time flights....

Mahotsavam performed


WITH PIETY:Sri Srinivasa Kalyana Mahotsavam being performed at Sankar Nagar near Tirunelveli on Sunday.

TIRUNELVELI: Thousands of devotees witnessed Sri Srinivasa Kalyana Mahotsavam organized by the Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanam (TTD) on India Cements Ground at Sankar Nagar near here on Sunday.

Special prayers were offered to Lord Venkateshwara and Padmavathi Thaayar on their arrival to Sankar Nagar on Saturday evening. Following ‘subbrabhatha sevai' on Sunday morning, special prayers and bhajan in the afternoon, a team of priests from Tirupati performed the thirukkalyana mahotsavam of Lord Venkateshwara and Padmavathi Thaayar at 7.45 p.m. Sri Andal's garland from Srivilliputtur was offered to Sri Perumal.

Special buses were operated from various southern districts to Sankar Nagar to enable devotees to witness the celestial wedding without any hassle. Over a lakh ‘Tirupathi laddus' were given as ‘prasadam' to the devotees who were allowed to enter the venue after being frisked with metal detectors.

Giant screens and a good number of LCD televisions had been installed at vantage points so that the devotees even in the last row could witness the event without any problem. Thanks to the meticulous arrangements made by the organisers to control the crowd, the devotees had darshan without any rush.

Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Tirunelveli Range, K.P. Shanmugarajeswaran, and Superintendent of Police Asra Garg camped at Sankar Nagar to monitor security arrangements.

Good to know you didn't request for a seaport, as Tuty has one for many years.

I don't understand the point why some are cribbing for an airport at nellai. 20 years back when there was no airport in Tuty, you were ready to go to Madurai(roughly 150 kms). Now you see an airport in Tuty(roughly 35 kms), you need another one behind your house(in 2 mtrs?). I bet its never going to materialize, at least in the next 100 years.

Do you think that if there is an airport in nellai, there will be more than 50 flights departing everyday? Your post is so contradictory, when you say, Trivandrum(State capitol) doesn't have good connectivity, how do you expect Tuticorin to have excellent connectivity? Even Chennai doesn't have direct connectivity to Sydney & Melbourne. There are plenty traveling from Chennai to Australia, but they do find alternate routes to get there. Remember, every airlines do more research and homework before they start a new route, to make sure its feasible & sustainable.

The revival of the airport, after lying idle for more than 10 years was itself a great project. Its better to have 1 flight everyday than having nothing.

The request you put forth should be reasonable and worthy. Please forumers, THINK OUT OF THE BOX and see how to develop these districts.

Hi Friends,

Good to see a lot of reply.

But really all are thinking about the approach from Tirunelveli.
Why we can't give importance to other places like tenkasi, sankarankoil, kovilpatti, courtallam, ambasamudram, valliyoor, nanguneri, also.
The airport is 45 minutes travel from nellai only but taking much time from other parts.
Also the frequency of plane needs to be increased & separate buses should be operated from nellai to the airport.


International airport is available in Trichy. Madurai is also having an airport. But both are separated only by 2 1/2 hours journey only.


Even the railways are taking decades to build a double laning how about an airport, that will take its own time. The most profitable route in southern railway is Chennai - nagercoil. But still struggling to get a ticket.

Don't fear that the new airport in nellai will hinder the development of Tuticorin. We are expecting sethu samudram that will be a historic development to our Tuticorin district and entire tamilnadu.

Also raising this issue only, AAI will develop the existing airport in Vagaikulam.

Atleast if we are giving voice now itself only it will be materialize after 100 years to get one international airport.

Think about the future. Struggle for development in our State.

No one thinks that if an airport comes in nellai will take away the business from other airports. Tuty airport is in the busy highway, its only the 2 km stretch from the highway to airport is not like 4 laned. In any airports, I have seen most of them taking a taxi or going in their own car/van etc. So I really don't see a need for a bus connectivity. AAI cannot build an airport with huge investments just to cater the people of small towns.

Don't go by the words of politicians. MK and MKS will say whatever they can to get the vote and finally JJ will come and say something big. 3 of you go give a petition to MK/MKS/JJ, they will add it in the next days news(only for the news) or during their next visit to the town. But in reality nothing will happen. Think about Subramaniya samy when he was the MP of Madurai. He said, he will turn Madurai as Singapore during his tenure. Actual case is nothing happened. There is more to it, than what is said by these above mentioned idiots. In reality, its hard to justify and get a project sanctioned.

Be it in Nellai or Tuty or suburbs try and make use of it the best way you can whatever is offered to the public.

I don't understand what you mean by approach for people coming from nellai. Is it that the approach for people from Tuty is better and they neglected the approach from nellai? I don't think so, approach is the same for both cities. Tuty to airport is 20 kms and Nellai to airport is 30/35kms. Thats the only difference.

Hi jyas

Try to understand

If IT hub is started in Gangaikondan the infrastructure should be well developed.
Until now top IT companies not interested to come to Gangaikondan except few BPO.
Many management people and employee need to fly to various countries for their projects.
Even though ELCOT mentioned about the vagaikulam airport it is only connecting
to chennai. We should give them an quick approach to airport and many countries.

We need to develop as a IT hub to benefit our five district students.

It was very difficult to move IT companies to Kovai and Trichy, with both as International airports. Just having an airport doesn't constitute that all companies will move to the South. Vagaikulam to get an International status will take years, other development projects can't wait until then. Connectivity to the airport is something the Govt is addressing, both from Nanguneri and from Gangaikondan to Vagaikulam Airport. It will take sometime for big companies to recognize Gangaikondan IT park. Kovai had better connectivity and roads than Tuticorin airport but still IT MNC's took a very long time to make a move into the city.

Airlines are not going to operate extra flights without people patronising them.The immediate need for vagaikulam is to increase frequency to Chennai. as it develops it can be connected to other cities.Even it has taken 30+ years for Madurai to be connected to Bombay and Delhi -thro chennai-(see new additions from Spice jet).
Also road connectivity is important. I think people from Nagercoil will start using vagaikulam airport as getting there is quicker than taking 3 hours to reach Trivandrum Arport in that bewitched highway which is problem ridden and unlikely to be developed for next years in spite of Governments best effort.
Road connectivity to Gangaikondan IT park from Airport should be good once Tuty highway is four laned.
Nellai and Tuty should face the competition together than fighting it alone. Remember they are only 45 KM apart and they are both cities with a population nearly mathching CBE or MDU
