Arrival operations at Cochin international airport resume after two hours
Arrival operations at the Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) resumed nearly two hours after it was suspended in view of possible inundation in the airport area following a rising water level in the Periyar river.
The decision to suspend the arrival operation was taken after four shutters of the Idamalayar dam were opened this morning to release excess water.
One shutter of the Idukki dam was also partially opened as a trial run.
Heavy rains have been lashing several parts of Kerala for the past few days, leading to a copious inflow into the state's reservoirs.
