Karipur: The advisory committee of the Kozhikode International Airport will meet on January 24 at the airport. The airport officials and people’s representatives will attend the meeting.
It will focus on resuming the service of large aircraft from the Karipur airport. Following the flight crash of last year, the planes in the Code E category were banned from operating in the airport. With this, Kozhikode lost its authorisation for Hajj Embarkation Centre and the foreign aircraft companies withdrew their premium services from the airport. This upset the development aspirations of the airport.
The conference will also consider boosting the existing services along with launching more domestic services here.
The other issues that will be addressed in the meeting include the land acquisition for airport development, road construction, construction of a substitute road to the airport, taxation procedures to Kondotty municipality and construction of a fire and rescue station, police station and hospital near the airport.
