The third terminal at the Cochin International Airport here will be opened next Friday by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, an official said.

“The brand new terminal is built in a record time of two years over an area of 15 lakh sq ft and will handle 4,000 passengers,” the Cochin International Airport Ltd (CIAL) official said, reports The Economic Times.
