Tiruchi airport gets canopy at cargo terminal

Image

Persistent demand of exporters for a canopy in front of the export cargo terminal at the Tiruchi international airport has been addressed.

A huge canopy has been put up in front of the cargo terminal enabling exporters to despatch their goods without any difficulty during rain or intense heat.

It has been established at a cost of Rs. 40 lakh with funds provided by the Airports Authority of India (AAI).

The canopy construction work which commenced in March was completed in a span of four-and-half months much ahead of the deadline.

It would provide cover for goods carriers carrying international cargo meant for overseas destinations.

The export trade community had been seeking this facility for several years and persistently raised the issue on various forums.

Airport sources said as part of the project the truck dock area had been widened on both sides to accommodate more goods carriers in front of the cargo terminal. The area with provisions of ramp and steps on either side would be in a position to accommodate seven big goods carriers or 12 mini goods carriers.

An anti-collision mechanism has been put in place to avert any damage to the platform and pillars while docking goods vehicles.

A total number of 15 LED flood lights have been installed at different places in the canopy area for better illumination while handling cargo during odd hours.

A plug-in facility has been provided for refrigerated vehicles carrying marine products when they wait before goods are loaded onto the aircraft.

Cargo from the Tiruchi airport go out to various overseas destinations including Singapore, Dubai, Kuwait and Kuala Lumpur through different foreign carriers. The movement of international cargo has seen an upswing ever since the export cargo terminal was commissioned a few years ago.

திருச்சி விமான நிலையத்துக்கு அப்துல் கலாம் பெயர் சூட்டவேண்டும் மாநகராட்சி மன்ற இரங்கல் கூட்டத்தில் வலியுறுத்தல்

மாநகராட்சி கூட்டம்

திருச்சி மாநகராட்சியின் அவசர கூட்டம் நேற்று மேயர் ஜெயா தலைமையில் நடந்தது. ஆணையர் விஜயலட்சுமி, துணைமேயர் சீனிவாசன் ஆகியோர் முன்னிலை வகித்தனர். கூட்டம் தொடங்கியதும் மேயர் ஜெயா, முன்னாள் ஜனாதிபதி அப்துல் கலாம் மறைவுக்கு இரங்கல் தெரிவித்து உறுப்பினர்கள் பேசலாம் என அறிவித்தார்.

இதனை தொடர்ந்து கோ அபிஷேக புரம் கோட்ட தலைவர் ஞானசேகர், அய்யப்பன் (அ.தி.மு.க) சத்திய மூர்த்தி, கவிதா, நாகராஜன், வெங்கட்ராஜ் (தி.மு.க), முஸ்தபா (ம.தி.மு.க), சங்கர் (தே.மு.தி.க), ஹேமா (காங்கிரஸ்), ஆகியோர் பேசினார்கள்.

விமான நிலையத்திற்கு கலாம் பெயர்
எதிர்க்கட்சி தலைவர் முத்துச்செல்வம் (தி.மு.க) பேசும்போது ‘ராமேசுவரத்தில் பிறந்த அப்துல் கலாம் திருச்சி ஜோசப் கல்லூரியில் படித்தார். அவர் விமானியாக தான் ஆசைப்பட்டார். ஆனால் அதற்கான வாய்ப்பு கிடைக்காமல் போனதால் ஏவுகணை தயாரிக்க தயாரானார். அணுகுண்டு சோதனை நடத்தி உலக வல்லரசு நாடுகளின் பார்வையை இந்தியாவின் பக்கம் திருப்பினார். அப்துல் கலாம் திருச்சியில் படித்ததால் திருச்சி மண்ணின் மீதும் மக்கள் மீதும் அதிக பாசம் கொண்டவராக இருந்தார். எனவே திருச்சி விமான நிலையத்திற்கு அப்துல் கலாம் பெயர் சூட்ட மாநகராட்சி முயற்சி எடுக்கவேண்டும்’ என்றார்.

துணைமேயர் சீனிவாசன் ‘வறுமையில் பிறந்து எளிமையாக வாழ்ந்த அப்துல் கலாம் இறுதிவரை மாணவர்களுக்காகவே தனது நேரத்தை எல்லாம் செலவிட்டார். இதற்காக நாட்டில் உள்ள முக்கியமான பல்கலைக்கழகங்களில் எல்லாம் கவுரவ பேராசிரியராக பணியாற்றி மாணவர்களுக்கு பாடம் நடத்தினார். அவரது லட்சிய கனவை நிறைவேற்ற நாம் எல்லோரும் பாடுபட வேண்டும்’ என்றார்.

2 நிமிடம் மவுன அஞ்சலி
இறுதியாக மேயர் ஜெயா இரங்கல் தீர்மானத்தை படித்தார். ‘அப்துல் கலாம் நாட்டின் தலைசிறந்த விஞ்ஞானி, அறிவியல் உலகின் தந்தை, இளைஞர் சமுதாயத்திற்கு வழிகாட்டியாக திகழ்ந்தார். பாரத ரத்னா விருதை பெற்ற அவர் ஓய்வு பெற்ற பின்னரும் மக்கள் ஜனாதிபதியாகவே மதிக்கப்பட்டார். அவர் தான் விரும்பியது போலவே மாணவர்களின் மத்தியில் தனது இறுதி மூச்சை நிறுத்திக்கொண்டார்’ என கூறினார்.

இதனை தொடர்ந்து அப்துல் கலாம் மறைவிற்காக அனைத்து உறுப்பினர்களும் எழுந்து நின்று 2 நிமிட நேரம் மவுன அஞ்சலி செலுத்தினார்கள். இதன் பின்னர் கூட்டம் மறு தேதி குறிப்பிடப்படாமல் ஒத்தி வைக்கப்பட்டது.

Airport terminal expansion may take three to four years

he Rs. 200-crore project mooted in the wake of steep increase in passenger traffic

There is bunching of flights between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. and between 11p.m. to 2 a.m.


Even as in-principle approval for the expansion of the new integrated terminal building of the Tiruchi international airport has been accorded, the actual implementation of the project at the field-level is expected to take some time.

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) had given the in-principle approval for the terminal building expansion project last year to augment infrastructure facilities to cope with upswing in overseas passenger traffic. The estimated cost of the expansion project has been pegged at over Rs. 200 crore.

The airport authorities here had forwarded a detailed proposal justifying the rationale for expansion of the terminal building in the wake of steep rise in travellers’ movements. This was because of the increase in the number of services of certain foreign carriers operating to different overseas destinations from Tiruchi. Airport sources say the completion of the project was expected to take at least three or four years from now. The identification of the agency for the execution of work and its actual completion would take time, say the sources.

Post expansion, passengers’ accommodation capacity at the integrated terminal building would significantly increase. The annual passenger handling capacity would rise from 4.9 lakh to 12 lakh a year, say the sources and added that it would significantly ease congestion at the airport.

The expansion work would be carried out both in the arrival and departure sides. Around 100 metres would be expanded in the arrival side and about 80 metres in the departure side.

The need for expansion was felt because of steady increase in flight services and overseas passengers’ movements to and from Tiruchi airport which handled over 10 lakh passengers in 2014-15 fiscal. The airport handles over 100 flights a week.

Hectic movements are witnessed between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. and from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. when there are bunching of overseas flights to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Dubai.

Additional space would be created in the terminal and departure sides once the expansion works were completed, say the sources. A couple of additional aircraft bays were proposed under the expansion plan. The third aero bridge is expected to be provided to the airport by the end of 2016.

Tiruchi airport clocks 25 per cent growth in international passenger traffic

It is attributed to gradual increase in the number of flight services

There is growing demand for starting services to West Asia

West Asia-bound passengers go via Colombo or Chennai


With a robust growth recorded in passenger and freight movement, the Tiruchi international airport has emerged as one of the fast growing non-metro airports in the country.

Catering essentially to select South, South East Asian, and West Asian destinations this profit-making airport has seen a steady rise in overseas flight services of certain low-cost foreign carriers spurring growth.

Serving as a hub for a large workforce of central and southern districts employed in West Asia and South East Asia, Tiruchi is unique among non-metro airports with more overseas operations than domestic connectivity.

Financial year 2014-15 was a landmark period for the airport when the overall passenger traffic crossed the one million mark with the volume of export cargo despatched exceeding 4,700 tonnes.

International passenger traffic clocked 25 per cent growth last fiscal because of the increase in overseas flight services with patronage being 90 per cent in all airlines, say airport authorities.

Kuala Lumpur–bound Air Asia with 21 services a week tops among the foreign airlines in passenger and cargo movement. Operating two flights a day in the Tiruchi–Colombo- Tiruchi sector is the Sri Lankan Airlines with the Air India Express plying in the Tiruchi – Singapore and Tiruchi – Dubai sectors. With Singapore-bound Tiger Airways augmenting its services to 13 per week and Kuala Lumpur-bound Malindo Air’s plan to increase its services to 14 per week from August, passenger and freight movements are expected to get a fillip.

Citing traffic data, airport authorities say Tiruchi airport was growing at 15 to 20 per cent adding that it was one of the few profit-making airports in the country now.

Even as the airport was on the growth trajectory, there had been a persistent demand from passengers, IATA agents and exporters of the Tiruchi region for operation of flights from Tiruchi to certain key West Asia destinations such as Kuwait, Sharjah, Qatar, and Jeddah.

With the lone West Asian connectivity being only to Dubai from Tiruchi at present, the workforce and other travellers of the region are forced to travel to Chennai or go via Colombo.

There are several enquiries to Kuwait, Sharjah and Qatar and if the Air India Express or other carriers were to operate flight services to these destinations from Tiruchi, it would augur well for the export community and travellers, says a Tiruchi-based IATA agent.

In the absence of direct connectivity to West Asian destinations such as Kuwait, cargo, especially perishable commodities which account for the maximum, are routed via Colombo, say exporters.

However, Singapore happens to be the major market for freight from Tiruchi, says an airport official.

Acknowledging that there was a heavy demand to certain West Asian destinations from Tiruchi, an official of the Air India here said the airline was unable to start new services because of shortage of aircraft. However, things would change once the leasing of aircraft was completed in the year-end, he added.

With e-tourist visa facility set to be launched at the airport shortly, airport officials foresee a further spike in passenger traffic.

If you are having shortage of aircrafts than how you are getting aircrafts for introducing flights between Varanasi to sharjah??? since it is the modi's constituency, you will do whatever you want by rejecting the trichy's genuine demands.....

Export of human hair to Myanmar goes up

Human hair has a good demand in neighbouring Myanmar, evident from the steady shipment of consignments from the Tiruchi International Airport.

It has become one of the export cargo items being dispatched from the airport since the beginning of this year. Nearly 15 tonnes of human hair has been airlifted from the Tiruchi airport to Yangon since January this year, airport sources said. The shippers have been from different places such as Bangalore, Chennai and Delhi. “This is a phenomenal jump in export of human hair compared to the previous year when the shipment was only 1.4 tonnes. The consignments come through customs-cleared bonded trucking from Chennai and Bangalore to Tiruchi airport from where it is dispatched,” says an airport official.

The consignments are lifted to Kuala Lumpur by Air Asia flights from where it is further transhipped to Yangon – the final destination, say officials.

The cargo is sent in the available belly space of passenger flights of Air Asia which operates 21 services in the Tiruchi – Kuala Lumpur – Tiruchi sector every week.

“The shipment of human hair is not regular as perishable commodities, which account for 90 per cent of the export cargo from Tiruchi airport. Nevertheless, it has added to the export cargo throughput besides adding revenue to the fast growing Tiruchi airport,” the senior official points out.

Although the desired purpose for which human hair was being imported in bulk by Myanmar is not clearly known to the stakeholders here, they believe that it could be used for making wigs and hairpieces.

The business has added to the export cargo throughput from the profit-making Tiruchi international airport which has direct air connectivity to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Colombo and Dubai.

Tiruchy, Thoothukudi Airports, Thanjai IAF Base on Standby

Expecting a surge in VIP movement towards Rameswaram to pay last respects to former president APJ Abdul Kalam, the Tiruchy international airport and Thanjavur Air Force Station of the Indian Air Force have both been put on stand-by mode.

Aerial traffic in the form of special flights and helicopters are expected to peak as a large number of national leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, are expected to reach Rameswaram via Madurai airport. With a view to managing the sudden rush, the Airports Authority of India, Tiruchy, and Thanjavur Air base officials have been alerted to be on stand-by mode for any exigency that may arise.

Meanwhile, the body of APJ Abdul Kalam, who passed away at Shillong on Monday following a cardiac arrest, was brought from New Delhi to Madurai in a special flight on Wednesday afternoon. Later, it was airlifted by a chopper to Mandapam. Kalam’s last rites would be performed as per Islamic customs at his hometown of Rameswaram on Thursday.

A large number of political leaders and followers are expected to swarm Rameswaram to pay their last respects. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu confirmed that Prime Minister Modi would attend the funeral.

Meanwhile, EVKS Elangovan, Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president, told reporters that party vice-president Rahul Gandhi would also visit Rameswaram to pay his homage.

As Madurai airport is not built to accommodate such heavy traffic and is constrained by limited parking space, Tiruchy and Thanjavur facilities have been ordered to prepare to handle any diversion made to that area, airport authorities said.

While a helicopter from Andhra Pradesh has been positioned at the Tiruchy airport, there has been no communique from the government of Andhra Pradesh or from air traffic services from any other airports about any diversion,” said K Jebaraj, deputy general manager (Air Traffic Services), Tiruchy.

“Since it is an emergency situation, any flight or helicopter can make an emergency landing here in case of exigency or refuelling,” Jebaraj added.

Meanwhile, temporary helipads were set up in various parts of Thoothukudi district as a standby measure to receive VIPs coming for the funeral of Kalam. Collector M Ravi Kumar inspected one of the facilities at the SAV School Ground.
