Airport Expansion.



Meeting held with Collector Dr.P.Umanath as Head and 16 other officials.
No additional land will be acquired(276 acres).
The 276 acres was mistakenly given in the Draft Plan.
After Expansion, Next to Hyderabad, Coimbatore will be having Longest Runway of 12500 ft.in South India.


Collector also clears doubt of expansion work after his transfer()..because the new collector M.Karunakaran was previously worked as a DRO in preparing the Report for Airport Expansion.so the works will not stop.
And adding to this, as he is going for Financial Secretary, he will try to the maximum level to get maximum compensation.
The Airport expansion will take around one year..

Do you expect the GOI to prevent airlines from operating into IXM, TRZ and MAA? CJB has better domestic connectivity as compared to IXM and TRZ.

HI,
You should try to underscore the demographic needs of these cities IXM and TRZ. Other than the white collar professionals hailing from different parts of the state, these two airports have a lot of blue color /labor passengers hailing from the districts around Trichy and Madurai.I dont guess you have any complains about Chennai getting those connections.
IMHO, Coimbatore has a large population of businessmen who do significantly higher volume of trade within themselves or within India(That could be the reason why CJB has a very good domestic connections compared toTRZ or IXM).Only the commodities are exported, not that many labor.This might explain your anguish about CJB not getting that many international connections.But the expansion is well deserved for CJB to even support the domestic growth. i dont know why AAI is pulling the leg.Maybe because some morons working there believe only international airports are those which are important( to who?)

Airport gets a facelift

Source



They will protect visitors from the vagaries of the weather

With the works relating to installation of Rs 1.25 crore tensile fabric canopies at the Coimbatore Airport nearing completion, the airport is all set to get a new facelift.

The tensile fabric canopies with a novel design are aimed at providing protection to the visitors from soaring mercury levels and rain.

The design adds to the look of the departure and arrival hall terminal buildings.

Airport Director K. Peter Abraham said that the canopies are being installed at a cost of Rs 1.2 crore.

The work relating to installation of canopies is already over in terms of the arrival terminal building and the ongoing works in front of the departure terminal will be over in another month.

The provision of canopies is part of a Rs. 80 crore comprehensive modernisation work taken up to improve passenger amenities, capacity augmentation and for providing facelift to the airport, Mr.Peter Abraham said.

The two aero bridges from Hyderabad are expected to reach Coimbatore shortly and they would be commissioned in another 100 to 120 days enabling easy transit of passengers from the first floor of the terminal building to the aircraft and vice-versa.

The capacity augmentation in the departure hall is almost nearing completion making additional space available for passengers.
Growth

Increasing the space at the terminal building was a must, as the airport was witnessing a year-on-year passenger growth of 12 per cent and revenue growth of 10 per cent, he added.
