Since opening in 1999 Cochin Airport quickly became the airport of choice for most of our customers visiting Kerala. Not only is it centrally located but gives people a wide range of airline and schedule choices. On 1 February 2014 work began on a new terminal which will enable COK to handle even more passengers. It is anticipated that the new terminal will be open to the public in two and a half years. A forth Kerala airport in Kannur has also been started (scheduled to open next year) and a fifth in Aranmulla is planned.
