The concept of Aeropolis is based around airports becoming the anchors for a new type of city that develops around airports rather than on the fringes. In India, there are two such examples – one in West Bengal and other in Telangana.

  • With the onset of Kannur airport which was envisioned taking into account the future demand of the passenger traffic of the emigration population from North Kerala and the huge tourist volume in the hinterland, the district has a huge opportunity to be developed as an industrial hub in the state.
  • Kannur has various factors such as fertile soil, salubrious climate, rich forests, enormous fishing potentials, minerals, and existing infrastructural facilities offering ample scope for development of further industries. The Kannur airport is likely to
    facilitate export trade for the exportfocused industrial clusters.
  • Kannur region is home to many industrial sectors such as textile, food & agro, wood and paper related etc. Around the airport, Kannur is a major urban node and there is a sea port at Azhikkal. Calicut is also a key urban node which is a key target market.
  • Due to dearth of a comprehensive industrial setup in the district, major development is poised to come in with the proposed Aeropolis.

Indicative Project Cost

  • INR 850 -1000 Cr
  • USD 121Mn -143Mn

Connectivity

  • Air: Kannur International Airport
  • Road: NH 17, NH 66
  • Sea: New Mangalore Port 
  • Address: Mattannur, Kannur

Investment avenues

  • The proposed Greenfield Aeropolis in Kannur, is envisaged to be unique development with capability to change the socio-economic scenario of its primary hinterland
  • The feasibility study conducted by INKEL proposed two development options for the project namely
  • Integrated with development plan of Kannur International airport and bid out on BOT mode.
  • Treated as separated entities, wherein Aeropolis will be bid out on BOT mode.
