This project envisages the development of the Sabarimala Greenfield International Airport in the Kottayam district, Kerala.
Overview of the Project:
The Government of Kerala plans to set up a greenfield international airport named Sabarimala Greenfield International Airport, in the Kottayam district at Cheruvally Estate. Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation (KSIDC), a premier agency of the state government, will oversee the development of the upcoming airport, poised to cater for the Central Travancore and the Sabarimala Pilgrims at Cheruvally Estate.
The project will occupy an anticipated 2263.18 Acres of land parcel and will feature one of the longest runways measuring 3,400 meters long and 45 metres wide. It will be developed at an estimated construction cost of INR 3,411 Crore. Once operational, Sabari International Airport would be the fifth international airport in Kerala State after Cochin International Airport, Trivandrum International Airport, Calicut International Airport, and Kannur International Airport.
KSIDC has received site clearance from the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) for the development and has floated a retender to select a consultant for preparing a detailed project report (DPR). Apart from preparing the DPR, the selected consultant will have to secure the remaining clearances and manage the bid process for the development of the project.
