Trivandrum International Airport

Number of Terminals
+91 471 270 2600
A small provincial airport in southern India, Trivandrum International is not a place you’d want to have a long stopover. The lines are notoriously long and service can be very slow, especially at peak times. However, the airport has recently expanded, with a new third terminal to handle international flights, which boasts air-conditioning and Wi-Fi.
The airport serves the Kerala province and many of the popular beach resorts there. Its position on the west side of the southern tip of India also makes the airport a convenient transit point for trips to the Maldives and Sri Lanka or the Middle East, and flights to Trivandrum are available from nearly every airport in India.
The terminals are close enough together for you to walk from one to the other.
