Regardless of Kerala Government trying to thwart Amit Shah’s arrival, which was, however, crushed after the intervention of the civil aviation authorities in Delhi, he arrived with hundreds of people waiting to welcome him.

The date of the airport’s commercial opening has not been decided yet but it is set to be inaugurated in December after Kannur International Airport Limited (KIAL) gets the aerodrome license from the Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

The airport will be a big boost for the people of Kannur, who have had to depend on either the Karippur airport in Kozhikode district or the Mangalore airport in neighbouring Karnataka till now.

He is in Kannur to inaugurate the new district office of the BJP. He is also scheduled to unveil Balidan Smriti at Mararji Bhavan in Kannur, Kerala and later attend Mahasamadhi Navathi Mahamandala Pooja Sammelan at Sivagiri in Thiruvananthapuram. From Kannur, Shah will travel to the state capital and also to Varkala before returning to the national capital on Sunday.
