Utilities and Support Infrastructure

Creating outside support services/ infrastructure facilities is considered to be as important as the development of the Airport itself. The greatest emphasis is being laid on the access roads. The plan is to take up and complete the supporting infrastructure by the time the airport is built.

Roads to be developed

Kannur - Mattannur
Thalassery - Mattannur
Payannur - Mattannur
Karnataka Border - Mattannur
Mattannur -Anjarakkandi - Thalassery
Wayanad - Mattannur
Mahi - Muzhuppilangad by pass
Nadapuram - Thalassery road

Rail linking Thalassery with Mysore will facilitate multi-modal access to the airport. The state government is pursuing discussions with the Central Ministry of Railways on a proposal for 'Kannur International Airport Railway Station'.

Kerala State Electricity Board has accorded its consent for augmenting power supply to cater Airport and other infrastructure requirements.

Kerala Water Authority  has accorded its consent to supply treated water for the entire operational requirement of the Airport

The tourism industry, especially health, pilgrimage and beach tourism, would be developed to attract more national and international tourists. The airport will be established quite close to Wayanad and Coorg which are suitable locations for adventure and wild life tourism. Even before the commencement of the construction of the airport several hotel chains have come up to explore the tourism potential of the region.

Pilgrimage Tourism
This is a branch of tourism which can be promoted in this area due to the presence of a large number of internationally famous shrines belonging to different religions.

Traditional industries like textile, handloom and modern sectors like IT will get a boost with the establishment of the airport. Similarly the airport will grow due to rapid industrialization from the flow of increased passengers. It is a win-win situation.
