The new terminal at Cochin International Airport, in the south Indian city of Kochi, will be operational in May 2016, it has been confirmed.

The Economic Times quoted Kerala’s Chief Minister, Oommen Chandy, as making the statement during the launch of a new solar power project at the airport.

The new international terminal is being developed at a cost of approximately INR6 billion (US$92 million) and will be able to handle up to 12m passengers per year, with 15 aerobridges.

Meanwhile, Kochi has become the first airport in India to be operated entirely using solar power. Chandy inaugurated the airport’s new 12 MWp solar power plant on Wednesday, which it claims will make the facility “absolutely power neutral”.
