Few inches away for Madurai Airport to get international connectivity/terminal

If you have seen Madurai Airport recently, you will be surprised and it looks great!!!!

The year 2012 may bring International Air Connectivity to Madurai, the 'temple city' in southern Tamil Nadu, India. Srilankan Airways chairman Nishantha Wickramasinghe had agreed to introduce a direct flight from Sri Lanka to Madurai this year. This would enable onward connectivity to international destinations via Colombo. Srilankan Airways has also setup a stall in Madurai Trade Fair to advertise the launch.

Indian Carrier Air India has confirmed international flight to Singapore from Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh via Madurai starting March 2012. The Members of Parliament from Madurai and Virudhunagar have agreed to take up the issue of new bilateral agreements needed with the Union Government of India to ensure more international flights from Madurai.

The Travel Club of Madurai have provided the information that a major part of the passengers boarding international flights from Chennai, Tiruchi and Thiruvananthapuram airports were from the southern districts. There are efforts taken to bring connectivity with Kuala Lampur.
