Kerala government provides in-principle clearance for Sabarimala airport
Last Updated: 17-Feb-2017
Kerala cabinet has given an in-principle approval to develop a greenfield airport at Sabarimala near Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala. The proposed new airport will reduce traffic congestion during the festival season at Ayyappa temple in Sabarimala between November and January. The state government has asked Kerala State Industrial Development Corp (KSIDC) to conduct a study on the airport project. It may be noted, in November 2016, the union government agreed to issue a no objection certificate (NOC) for an airstrip near Sabarimala.
