The Tamil Nadu government is expediting the process for constructing the next greenfield airport in the state. According to reports, the government is said to have identified four plots at Parandur, Sriperumbudur, Mamallapuram and Tirupur. The selection of land is primarily based on factors like the availability of land and the flexibility to construct the required runways. “It is not easy to finalise a site soon. We should consider the land availability, the number and type of runways that can be constructed and other such issues. We have to see the distance from Tambaram Air Force Base too,” a source told the news publication, The Hindu, which first published the news. The state government has requested the Airports Authority of India (AAI) to conduct the feasibility of the four identified locations. “We understand that the talk on this airport has been around for years now. But things are progressing now. We understand the economic and business potential that comes by setting up this airport,” The Hindu quoted an unknown source.
