TEA, SIMA hail efforts for Coimbatore airport expansion
Nov '17
The Tiruppur Exporters’ Association (TEA) and the Southern India Mills’ Association (SIMA) have thanked the Tamil Nadu government and the Airports Authority of India (AAI) for initiating steps for expansion of the Coimbatore airport. The expansion with international flight connectivity will immensely benefit the industrial region around the airport.

An October 28 meeting held at the Coimbatore Collectorate decided to form a committee under the commissioner for land administrative reforms to acquire necessary land for the airport expansion project.

The Kongu region consisting of seven western districts of Tamil Nadu — Coimbatore, Tirupur, Karur, Nilgiris, Salem, Erode and Namakkal — contributes more than 40 per cent of the state’s GDP. The state accounts for a third of the country’s textile business and over 70 per cent of its manufacturing, business and trade is located in the Coimbatore region.

International flight connectivity is essential to reduce time delay and cost as currently all air shipment from the industrial belt is carried out from Chennai , Bangalore, Cochin and Tiruchirappalli, according to separate press statements issued by both the associations. (DS)
