Creating outside support services/ infrastructural facilities is considered to be as important as the development of the airport itself. The greatest emphasis is being laid on access roads. The plan is to take up and complete the supporting infrastructure at the earliest.
Roads Being Developed
|Mattannur - Anjarakandy
|Muzhuppilangad by pass
Rail linking Thalassery with Mysore will facilitate multi-modal access to the airport. The State Government is pursuing discussions with the Central Ministry of Railways on a proposal for 'Kannur International Airport Railway Station.
Tourism / Hotels
Tourism, especially health, pilgrimage and beach tourism, is being developed in the state to attract more national and international tourists. The airport is quite close to Wayanad and Kodagu (Coorg) which are well known locations for adventure and wild life tourism with great scenic beauty. Several hotel chains have come up to explore the tourism potential of the region.
This is a branch of tourism which is being promoted in this area in view of the presence of a large number of internationally famous shrines belonging to different religions.
Traditional industries like textile, handloom and modern sectors like IT will get a boost with the establishment of the airport. Similarly the airport will grow consequent to the rapid industrialization from the flow of increased passengers, a win-win situation for both.
