Business Jet Terminal at CIAL celebrates 1000 Flight Services Milestone

Cochin International Airport’s Business Jet Terminal, proudly announces the completion of one thousand flight services, marking a significant milestone in its operations. In just 14 months since its inception, the Cochin International Airport Ltd’s Business Jet Terminal (General Aviation Terminal catering to exclusive chartered  flight operations) has achieved the remarkable feat of facilitating 1000 business jet operations, reaffirming its position as a premier destination for corporate travelers from India and abroad to Kochi. Spanning over 40,000 square feet, the biggest of its kind in the country, the business jet terminal located at Terminal 2 stands as the architype of modernity and luxury in the country. Under the tagline ‘Fly Elegantly’ facilitating a commuter transfer from Aircraft Door to Car Door in 2 Minutes, the terminal has quickly gained popularity among corporate clients nationwide. Additionally, the terminal boasts separate customs and immigration counters along with a boutique duty-free shop catering to international passengers. During the G20 meeting held at Lakshadweep in April 2023, the terminal witnessed the arrival of a dozen-chartered planes from various countries. Another significant operation handled by the terminal was in September 2023 when it facilitated a Boeing 737 aircraft with 58 passengers from different parts of the globe, disembarking at the CIAL Business Jet Terminal on that eventual day. In the year 2024 alone, the CIAL Business Jet Terminal has handled an impressive 120 services within just two months, and the numbers are projected  to exceed 1200 by the end of this year. "We are happy to celebrate this significant milestone of completing 1000 flight services at the Jet Terminal," said S.Suhas IAS, Managing Director, CIAL.
