Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) is on an ambitious drive to elevate its aeronautical and non-aeronautical facilities to new heights. As part of this visionary pursuit, CIAL has commissioned its state-of-the-art Business Jet Terminal, entered into an agreement with Airworks for operating the MRO and is currently developing a 150000 square feet cargo import terminal, expected to be commissioned in September 2023. CIAL is also embarking on an expansion of the international terminal, T3, with the addition of 8 more aerobridges. Installation of full body scanners and DigiYatra facial recognition systems is expected to reduce the time taken for security checks.
From the non-aero side, CIAL has inked into a strategic agreement with the renowned Taj group to oversee the operation of its luxurious 112 key five-star hotel situated within the airport premises. This is expected to be commissioned in March 2024. CIAL has also initiated the development of many new projects such as a Commercial Zone in front of the international terminal, Transit Accommodation, Golf Villas and sporting facilities, a City Hotel Project, etc.
