The airport would have two runways, terminal buildings, taxiways, cargo terminal, he said in an official release.
In a statement, CREDAI Chennai while welcoming the decision to set up the airport at Parandur said the second airport for Chennai would give a big push to the aviation sector.
“It is paramount that connectivity to the airport is well planned and executed in the models of international cities. This should give a fillip to the setting up of ancillary and support industries in the corridor,” CREDAI said.
The new airport location would be placed on the global logistic map and would get a boost with more real estate developments, whether it is residential, commercial, retail or hospitality sectors, CREDAI said.
