Aviation Projects In India

Cochin International Airport, Kerala

Cochin International Airport, the first greenfield airport in the country built under Public Private Participation (PPP) model aptly symbolizes the capability of KITCO to take-up implementation of airport projects of all magnitudes and dimensions.
The project had evinced keen interest nationwide not only because of the astonishingly lower overall cost of  ` 300 crores (U$ 67 million) but also for the fact that no working day was lost due to labour unrest during the shorter time span of 30 months within which the project was completed in all respects.
The concept, planning and implementation of the airport later became a topic of case study across the country at many management institutes of repute like IIM Ahmedabad. The President of Sri Lanka, Mahindra Rajapakshe, who had embarked at Kochi a few times, had shown keen interest to replicate the CIAL model in his country.
 The airport has been constructed with facilities matching international standards and with a vision for expansion on a modular basis.  Within a short span of five years after its inauguration, the airport had earned the distinction of being the fourth ranking Airport in India in terms of passenger traffic.  It is also rated as the second best airport in the world after Auckland in terms of profitability-turnover ratio.
