Cochin (Kochi) Airport shut for 4 days

Wed Aug 15, 2018 6:43 pm

The monsoon has brought the entire state of Kerala to a stand still. "The Cochin International Airport has been shut down till Saturday after flood water submerged the runway. Earlier Wednesday morning, the airport suspended all flight operations till 2 pm and diverted many flights to Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode as rain continued to lash different parts of the state".
Even though the airport flood is not bad as the Chennai airport floods (about 3yrs ago) - Kochi airport that has won several international recognition with its pioneering initiatives, which is also considered a key game changer in Indian Aviation is now severely affected.
