Kerala Airports

Kerala has three airports with good domestic and international connections.

Thiruvananthapuram International Airport at the capital city of Trivandrum is situated within the city limits, and Cochin International Airport (Nedumbassery) is close to all three national highways passing through Kerala (NH 47, NH 17 and NH 49). The main railway line from Kanyakumari to Delhi is adjacent to the airport, and Cochin Sea Port, one of the biggest in the country, is also situated nearby. Karipur Airport (Kozhikode) is the third airport. There are daily flights operating from Singapore, Colombo, Male, Muscat, Bahrain, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Calicut airport is linked nationally.

Kannur International Airport is the 4th International Airport in Kerala (under Construction : estimated completion 2013). The proposed airport will come as a boon to the large number of non-resident Keralites from Kannur and Kasargode who now have to travel to either Kozhikode or Mangalore. Tourists headed to Coorg also can use this airport.

Kannur Airport will be located at Moorkhanparambu in Keezhallur panchayath, near Mattanur Municipality, in Kannur District of Kerala State. 25 Kilometers from Kannur Town and 2 Kilometers from mattanur in Kannur-Mattanur-Mysore road.

Airport Code History

When the Wright brothers first took to the air in 1903, there was no need for coding airports since an airport was literally any convenient field with a strong wind. However, the National Weather Service did tabulate data from cities around the country using a two-letter identification system. Early airlines simply copied this system, but as airline service exploded in the 1930's, towns without weather station codes needed identification. Some bureaucrat had a brainstorm and the three-letter system was born, giving a seemingly endless 17,576 different combinations. To ease the transition, existing airports placed an X after the weather station code. The Los Angeles tag became LAX, Portland became PDX, Phoenix became PHX and so on. Incidentally at the historic sand dune in Kitty Hawk where the first flight occurred the U.S. National Parks Service maintains a tiny airstrip called FFA—First Flight Airport.

Many station codes are simply the first three letters of the city name: ATL is Atlanta, BOS is Boston, MIA is Miami, SIN is Singapore, and SYD is Sydney, Australia. The first letter(s) of multiple cities served forms other codes: DFW for Dallas Fort Worth, MSP for Minneapolis/St. Paul, and GSP for Greenville/Spartenburg, South Carolina. Sometimes the city name lends itself to one letter for each word, such as Salt Lake City (SLC), Port of Spain in Trinidad & Tobago (POS), or even Port au Prince, Haiti (PAP).
