According to reports, the land acquisition project for the expansion of the Peelamedu civil airport at Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, is expected to commence soon. This follows a communication by the Coimbatore district administration in tandem with the Airport Authority of India (AAI), which owns the Peelamedu airport, to the Tamil Nadu state government, seeking permission to begin the land acquisition process.


After getting the government’s permission in this connection, the district administration would set in motion the process to acquire 114 acres of land required for the project. Almost the all the land required for the project is privately held. The land acquisition is estimated to cost Rs.3.72 crore and the acquisition process is likely to take 6-12 months.


AAI has already committed to the state government the funds needed for acquiring land for runway expansion and would deposit the fund with the state once the acquisition process is on.


Expansion of the airport runway would help in enhancing the capacity of the Peelamedu airport in terms of both, passenger and cargo handling. The present 7,500 feet runway is inadequate for wide-bodied aircraft. In order to accommodate higher aircraft load, the runway has to be increased up to 9,000 feet.
