Cochin International Airport suspended operations till 18th Saturday 2 PM


The Cochin airport – seen as the gateway to Kerala – was shut on Wednesday as the authorities found it impossible to continue flight operations.

Later in the day, a spokesperson of the airport said, “Kochi airport operations temporarily suspended till 18th Saturday 2 PM since the inflow of water is still on a raising trend. We are working hard to drain out the storm water“.

It is not known if the airport or the runway is flooded. The decision to suspend the operations was taken after all the shutters of two dams of the Idukki water reservoir were reopened last evening to release excess water.
