27 October 2008

Chennai: The Rs1,808 crore expansion programme of the Chennai International Airport has finally taken off with a formal inauguration by state chief minister M Karunanidhi.  The expansion is intended to enable the airport to handle increased air traffic and a higher volume of passengers.

 Tamil Nadu has already established itself as a favoured investment destination for various industries and the need for a larger, more modern international airport has been increasingly felt.

The expansion plans will add a new domestic terminal and a 2,500 feet parallel runway to existing facilities.

According to M Ramalingam, chairman, Airports Authority of India (AAI), with a parallel runway the airport would be able to handle 45 flights every hour compared to the existing 30 flights.
