Was Aranmula Airport Rejected by Central Finance Department?

The central finance department has objected to a new airport in Aranmula. In a memorandum dated July 9, 2012, the Under Secretary – Dept. of Revenue, Ministry of Finance, in-charge of Customs observed that there is “no urgent requirement to construct a Greenfield airport in Aranmula at this juncture.” Addressed the Under Sec of Aviation, it pertinently notes that Aranmula is “geographically equidistant between Cochin and Trivandrum airports.” Despite this, Ministry of Aviation is proceeding with the project. This report has surfaced even as there is an escalation of human trafficking and gold smuggling through existing 3 airports in Kerala.
