Nod for Airport at Kanjirappally; Targets Sabarimala Pilgrims

19 Juillet 2017

The state cabinet on Wednesday made a decision to initiate the process to set up the airport at Harrisons Malayalam Ltd's Cheruvally Estate in Kanjirapally taluk of Kottayam district.

The Kerala government on Wednesday chose to construct an airport at Kottayam district's Cheruvally estate to provide air connectivity to pilgrims visiting the Lord Ayyappa hill shrine at Sabarimala.

The Sabarimala airport was recommended by a four-member committee led by Kerala revenue secretary P H Kurian.

The 2,263 acre Cheruvally estate of the Harrisons Plantations is located at Kanjirapally, about 48 km from Sabarimala. The Minister assured Vijayan that a preliminary no-objection certificate for the airport would be given once the land for the project was identified. The issue is now pending in the Kerala High Court.

The estate in Kottayam district belongs to the Thiruvalla-headquartered Believers Church, but the state government has staked claim to it.

Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) is India's first solar-powered airport as its entire daily power requirement of about 52,000 units are met by its 12MWp (12 Mega Watt peak) power project plant. Earlier, there was a proposal to set up an airport at Aranmula, but following stiff resistance from environmental groups, the LDF government had previous year cancelled all orders related to the project, including the grant of in-principle sanction.
