    Cochin International Airport is a novel venture in the history of civil aviation in India where Government of Kerala, NRIs, Traveling Public, Financial Institutions, Airport Service Providers and others joined hands in the equity structure. This is the first International Airport in the country outside the ambit of the Government of India. This airport has been constructed to enable any type of wide bodied aircraft to land with state of the art facilities.

    So is this a new airport that's already up and running or something that's in the development stages right now ReenaShine? What do you see as being the pluses of this particular one?

    Airline industries and airports are tough businesses to make money from. There have been lots of high profile failures in this area. Do you think that Cochin International Airport can be profitable for it's commercial investors?

    It depends on how wide of a focus you have on the definition of profitable.

    Looking at the investor list it seems like the airport is to be used for drawing people in to the area, increasing local revenues from tourism dollars. This gives the entire region a financial boost, so the airport itself can operate at a break even goal, or even a slight loss, if the rest of the area is able to use it to be profitable.

    Thanks Pendelton, it's great to see businesses from an area coming together with such a large initiative to support the area economically.

    Good effort..In fact a noble effort in the field of Civil Engineering in providing public infrastructure without the support of govt.
    But I doubt it ROI(Return on Investment) ,,,,,The return period may be too long!!!!

    As Pendelton, the return to the investors may be indirect. If the local area benefits economically from the airport, the investors who have substantial business interests in the area will benefit as a result of an increase in profits in their other businesses.
