India’s first charter gateway; CIAL Business Jet Terminal launch on Dec 10

The Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) is all set to launch its classy Business Jet Terminal, unveiling the world of affordable chartered flying.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan will inaugurate the elegantly designed terminal at a function to be held at 5 pm on December 10, 2022. CIAL’s business Jet Terminal will be India’s first Charter Gateway, which will serve as a platform to integrate business jet service, tourism, and business conferences.

CIAL currently operates two terminals; T-1 handles the domestic traffic and T-3 facilitates international traffic. With the commissioning of the Business Jet terminal, which is constructed at the erstwhile domestic terminal (T2), CIAL will join the elite club of four airports in the country having a dedicated private jet terminal.

CIAL’s Business Jet terminal is compatible with operating both domestic and international private jets. With luxurious interiors and well-appointed relaxing spaces spread over 40,000 square feet, the business jet terminal is all set to welcome passengers in a classy ambiance.

The facilities include covered car parking, drive-in porches, a grand lobby, five opulent lounges, a Business Centre, check-in, Immigration, Customs, Health, and Security checking zones along with a Duty-free shop and foreign exchange counter for the smooth movement of discerning guests. A safe house for security-privileged guests is located at the terminal facility. The cost-effective terminal incorporates affordability in the Business Jet operation.

 CIAL Managing Director S Suhas IAS said the new Business Jet Terminal emphasizes the idea of affordable chartered flying. “With the commissioning of the Business Jet Terminal, Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL), unveils the World of Affordable Chartered Flying. It also marks another first. CIAL’s new Business Jet Terminal is going to be India’s First Charter Gateway and also a one-of-its-kind terminal in the country which integrates tourism, international summits, business conferences, and the movement of High Net worth Individuals… We are sure that, this concept will revolutionize the chartered flight service industry in India,” he said.

CIAL considers the operationalization of the business jet terminal as a part of its commitment to identify and activate new revenue verticals. It enhances CIAL’s ethos, of providing a world-class passenger terminal experience at an affordable cost, to another level. An exclusive terminal for handling the chartered/ business jets wherein the guests are provided with luxurious personal amenities in an elegantly designed private space completed at a cost of Rs. 30 Cr. Team CIAL could convert the departure portion of the erstwhile domestic terminal into a magnificent private jet terminal in record 10 months.
