MUMBAI- The Adani Group has announced its plans to develop a luxurious five-star hotel and an air traffic control tower in close proximity to the international airport terminal in Thiruvananthapuram.
Following a traditional cultural ritual resembling the group’s Gujarat roots. The Adani takeover of the airport business in the capital is formalized.
The hotel will be strategically positioned on the right side of the terminal. Subsequently, all necessary details and documents have been submitted to the government for approval. Furthermore, ensuring that the construction process adheres to environmental preservation guidelines.
Adani Hotel and Tower Near Thiruvananthapuram Airport
The hotel, boasting 240 rooms with a total capacity to accommodate up to 660 guests, will be strategically situated near the end of the flyover connecting the Chacka area to the airport.
Notably, there are currently no upscale hotels in close proximity to any airport in Kerala. Once the government grants approval, leading hospitality experts such as Oberoi will be awarded the contract for the hotel.
Pilots and flight attendants are accommodated in hotels far away from the capital city. This development will provide a much-needed respite, significantly reducing the travel time for staff after a tiring day’s work.
Foreign visitors will also reap the advantages of the upcoming high-end hotel located near the airport. The capital’s air traffic control (ATC) tower will closely resemble the one observed at Mumbai Airport.
Once construction is finalized, the eight-floor tower standing at the height of 49 meters, will be handed over to the airport authority.
With approximately 350 flights transiting through the capital city, the completion of the ATS tower will enhance the precision and technical capabilities of air traffic management.
