Kannur Airport to become cargo gateway for North Malabar, South Karnataka.
Feb 23, 2021

Kannur International Airport (KIAL) in Kerala recently opened its 1,200 sq mt cargo complex with an annual capacity of 12,000 metric tonnes and will soon have the 6,000 sq mt international cargo terminal ready. It is now aiming to become the air cargo hub for the region by exporting goods to the Gulf region and even to the United States by beating other airports with its advantages.
Being the fourth international airport of Kerala, it has Calicut International Airport just 120 kms south of it and Mangalore International Airport 170 kms north of it. However, the ability of KIAL to handle much bigger aircraft due to its runway length and connectivity to industries, businesses and plantations in the North Malabar and South Karnataka makes it an ideal candidate to become the cargo gateway of the region to the world.
