Kannur airport runway expansion approved

The board of Kannur International Airport Limited has approved the proposal to extend the runway from 3,050 metres to 4,000 metres under Phase II of the Kannur International Airport project. The board also approved the acquisition of 162 acres of additional land for the runway extension. Since the permission to acquire 68 acres is already in place, the extension of the runway and the parallel taxiway to 3,400 metres will be undertaken in Phase I itself.
