Trivendrum Airport

Trivandrum Airport is one of the three international airports in Kerala. As large number of people from Kerala are working in the Gulf, most of the international flights flying from Trivandrum International Airport are catering to the Gulf region. With the emergence of Kerala as a hot tourist destination, Thiruvananthapuram Airport is also handling large number of foreign tourists. Presently, eight International airlines are operating from Trivandrum Airport. These are: Air India, Gulf Air, Indian Airlines Ltd, Kuwait Airways, Oman Air, Qatar Airways, SilkAir, and Sri Lankan Airlines.

Trivandrum International Airport is an international airport in Kerala, India. It is located 3.7 km from Thiruvananthapuram (formerly known as Trivandrum) and is the main gateway for tourists to Kerala. The airport was established in 1932 as part of the Kerala Flying Club. In January 1, 1991 it was upgraded to an international airport, making it the first such airport in India outside the metropolitan cities. Till the inauguration of the Cochin International Airport at Nedumbassery, the Trivandrum airport carried almost all of the passenger and cargo traffic in Kerala. The volumes have been reduced now. However, the airport remains to be one of India's busiest as it caters to the needs of Kerala and the southern districts of Tamil Nadu state.

Trivandrum International Airport has direct flights to Kuwait, Singapore, Maldives, Colombo, Sharjah, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Jeddah and the United Arab Emirates. It is also linked with Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kozhikode and Bangalore by domestic flights. Most of the revenue of the airport comes from the Gulf sector, with the airport catering for the needs of the huge Kerala diaspora in the Middle East.
