Nearly 400 tonnes are being sent every month

Vegetables grown in Tamil Nadu have become a favoured commodity in Singapore given the huge volume of export to the South-East Asian nation every month.

Among overseas nations having direct flight connectivity with Tiruchi, Singapore has emerged as the leading overseas market for shippers of the central region exporting vegetables to the country every day.

Nearly 400 tonnes of perishables – vegetables, fruits and flowers – were being exported to Singapore per month from Tiruchi international freight terminal through three overseas carriers.

Exports to Singapore alone constitute nearly 80% of the entire overseas freight dispatched from Tiruchi international airport every month. Of the nearly 20 tonnes of perishables dispatched overseas daily, nearly 13 tonnes to 14 tonnes were directed to Singapore, say airport sources.

The huge demand in Singapore for vegetables grown in Tamil Nadu; the competitive rates offered to shippers of the central region and the frequency of flights has led to this rising trend, say stakeholders.

Assorted vegetables including brinjal, ladies finger and beans besides lemon, coconut and chillies make for the bulk of exports to the South East Asian country. Vegetables are lifted to Singapore by Singapore-bound Scoot Airlines and the Kuala Lumpur –bound Air Asia and Malindo Air flights. The sources said Air Asia and Malindo Air which operates 28 flights and 13 flights to Kuala Lumpur respectively every week from Tiruchi lifts freight meant only for Singapore though they operate to the Malaysian capital.

If only Air India Express which also operates a daily service to Singapore comes forward to lift adequate freight from here, the volume cargo to that country would only soar further given the demand, feel the stakeholders.

International cargo is lifted in the left over belly space of overseas passenger flights after accommodating baggage of the travellers in the absence of dedicated freighter aircraft from here.

As compared to Coimbatore and Madurai international airports in the State, the volume of international freight dispatched from Tiruchi to Singapore and other foreign destinations was much higher.

International cargo handled at Tiruchi airport during the 2016-17 financial was over 6,800 tonnes - which was nearly six times higher than what was handled at Coimbatore airport, according to Airports Authority of India statistics.

The sources said Kuwait was another overseas destination where daily shipments of nearly 2.5 tonnes of perishables take off from here and reaches there via Colombo.

Given the current demand and potential, stakeholders feel that if a dedicated freighter is operated at least once or twice a week to Singapore, the cargo volume would only further rise.

Why Chennai airport may miss the flight

Around 13 airports in the country will get shopping plazas, business parks, corporate offices, convention and exhibition halls as part of a plan by Airports Authority of India (AAI) to boost non-aeronautical revenue, but Chennai will miss the flight.
Though AAI wants to develop Chennai as a hub for international flights, it would be several years before it could become as a self-sustaining commercial entity, like Changi airport in Singapore or Incheon airport in South Korea. AAI's residential quarters and a wedding hall at Chennai airport can be used for commercial purpose, but priority is to add more flight parking bays.

World over, major airports are being transformed into 'air cities' with sprawling business and residential enclaves. However, Chennai airport will not be one because it requires all the land that can be spared for flight operations. The only possible avenue it will be left with to earn some money, other than from landing and parking charges from airlines, will be from car parking contracts as two multi-level car parks that can accommodate more than 1,000 cars each will be built in the coming months.

"If the airport is to be expanded into a hub for international flights, it has to have more facilities for transit passengers like hotels, entertainment, logistics and aviation tech park centres that will create an overall growth in economic activity necessary to boost cargo movement," an official said.

AAI has started to push for a proposal to boost its non-aeronautical revenue by developing space available on the city-side of airports so that it can offset the revenue loss the authority has suffered after air traffic and navigation services - which brought in the big money - were hived off into a separate entity. Now, cargo has been given to a subsidiary company.
A senior AAI official said developing the city-side was crucial to increase the non-aeronautical revenue. "The AAI Act 1994 specified that land can be used only for a few ventures like car parking, staff quarters, warehouses for cargo, and for food and beverages units for passengers and staff," the official said.

Amending this act will enable AAI to establish offices, malls, hotels and other commercial units. The immediate plan is to have them at 13 airports including Tirupati, Kolkata, Lucknow, Jaipur, Amritsar, Bhubaneshwar, Raipur and a few others. Trichy has been included in the later phases.

"There is no plan as such for commercial exploitation of the city-side area on a grand scale because the availability of space is limited. The space that may be freed up when ground car parking is moved into multi-level car parks which will be built may be needed for building bus-bays and some small utilities for passengers," airport director G Chandramouli said. "Our priority now is to boost capacity for operations," he said.

Surveillance stepped up at Tiruchi airport

An alert issued by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) in view of Independence Day has prompted security personnel to step up surveillance at the Tiruchi international airport.

The alert has been sent to all airports across the country by BCAS, the national regulatory authority for civil aviation security, for a period from August 6 to 20, airport sources said.

Acting on the alert, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), which provides round-the-clock security at the airport, has enhanced its surveillance. In addition to other vital areas falling within the airport premises, CISF personnel have also brought the city side of the airport under increased vigil. Teams of CISF personnel armed with automatic weapons have been posted on the city side.

Accordingly, visitors’ entry at the international airport will be banned from August 8 to 20, said the sources. Surveillance has been enhanced at the terminal building and outside areas within the airport premises, besides enhanced frisking and baggage checking.

Armed teams will be posted near the parking area from Sunday onwards. The Tiruchi airport, which witnesses brisk movement of passengers in the morning and late night hours due to bunching of overseas flights to different foreign destinations, has already been classified as “sensitive”.

Around 300 CISF personnel sanctioned for the airport cover all vital spots in shifts. This includes a striking force team to deal with emergency situations. The CISF takes care of substantial portion of the airport barring the city side, which comes under the purview of the City Police.

Tiruchi to get busier with more overseas flights

Thai AirAsia to launch services in Sept.; number of services to cross 200 a week

Overseas flight movements are set to soar at the Tiruchi international airport with Thai AirAsia deciding to launch its service to Bangkok from here.

The announcement of the low-cost airline to operate four services a week to the Thai capital will perk up the overall passenger traffic at the airport here, which has more foreign flight operations than domestic services. The new service is to be launched from September 29.

The introduction of a direct flight service to Bangkok — a new destination — will now increase the total tally of international flight operations at Tiruchi airport to a little over 200 per week.

With Sri Lankan Airlines, Air Asia, Malindo Air, Scoot and Air India Express presently operating daily flight services to select destinations in South Asia, South East Asia and West Asia, the number of overseas flights handled at Tiruchi is 196 per week. This figure will now rise to 204 once Thai AirAsia takes off from here, said airport authorities.

The fast growing Tiruchi airport has seen the entry of more foreign carriers operating services from here. Tiruchi is next to Chennai, but way ahead of Madurai and Coimbatore international airports in respect of overseas flight movements.

As per Airports Authority of India (AAI) statistics, international aircraft movements at the Tiruchi airport stood at 8,736 during the 2016-17 financial year. This figure was higher as compared to 2015-16 fiscal when overseas aircraft movements were 8,262.

Way ahead

Tiruchi is also way ahead of other AAI- managed non-metro international airports at places such as Amritsar, Lucknow, Goa, Jaipur, Varanasi and Coimbatore in respect of overseas flight movements.

If the present schedule is maintained by the existing overseas airlines coupled with the entry of the Thai AirAsia, the overall foreign flight movements at the Tiruchi airport would exceed 9,000 in the current fiscal.

The international passenger traffic, which was over 11.90 lakh in 2016-17 at Tiruchi, is expected to increase further with the entry of Thai AirAsia.

Stakeholders say despite a rise in overall passenger traffic growth, the Tiruchi airport was yet to fall under the ‘major airport’ category s the airport is yet to attain the magic figure of 1.5 million mark in overall passenger traffic.

This would become possible if more domestic services were put in operation as well, officials said. Presently, domestic connectivity from here is only next to Chennai. Indigo and Jet Airways have expressed keenness in launching new services in the Tiruchi– Chennai and Tiruchi–Mumbai sectors respectively, officials added.

Cheaper rates will attract more travellers to Bangkok

Trichy: The Trichy- Bangkok direct service by Thai AirAsia will raise the total number of international flights being operated from Trichy airport to 102 from the present 98. At present, five carriers like Air Asia, Malindo, Sri Lankan, Tiger Air and Air India Express are operating services to Kuala Lumpur, Colombo, Singapore, Dubai and Sharjah. Besides, 28 domestic services are being operated by Jet Airways a week only to Chennai.


Compared to any other overseas destination, Thailand is comparatively cheaper. Hence the new service would attract more tourists from both the countries, say travel agents. "Since the tour package is cheap, travellers, particularly from upper middle class, would opt for Thailand as their destination. Many businessmen too go to the country for leisure using the cheap rates," says J John Nicholas, RL Aviation Services.


There is a close historical, spiritual and cultural connection between India and Thailand that dates back thousands of years. With many Tamil people running hotel business too in Bangkok, it would be a home away from home too for many tourists from here, he added. "People in Thailand have always been very friendly and affectionate towards those from India", he said.


According to studies, many festivals originating in India are widely celebrated in the Southeast Asian countries. The major Thai festivals include Songkran, Loy Krathong, Thai-Chinese vegetarian festival and the long boat race. These festivals share a common cultural heritage with Holi, Karthik Purnima, Deepavali, Navratri and Onam. These are all key factors that connect the people in both the countries.
