| Inauguration Of Cochin International Aiport’s T3 Terminal |
The completed International Terminal – T3 at Cochin International
Airport, spread over an expanse of 15 lakhs sq. ft., will be inaugurated on
11th March 2017 by the Hon’ble
Chief Minister Shri Pinarayi Vijayan in the august presence of MPs, MLAs,
Heads of Local Civic Bodies, Cochin
International Airport Ltd (CIAL) Directors and Investors.
The celebration will be marred by the omission of the Travel
& Tourism Trade in Kerala who
have not been invited by the IAL for
this function. Though all the National
Travel & Tourism Trade Associations are represented in Kerala through
their State Committees, this is the 2nd time that CIAL has ignored
the value of the Travel Trade services. 80% of international and 65% of
domestic are still being done by the traditional travel agents.
Though the CIAL is the first green field airport in the
country built with public-private partnership, this shop will likely turn out
to be just a ‘private’ one involving only the CIA officials.
