With the Abu Dhabi-Kochi Indigo flight touching down at 12.15 pm at the Cochin International Airport at Nedumbassery, flight operations e resumed on Sunday afternoon. It was two days ago that the airport was shut down after water gushed to the runway after heavy rain.
Check-in at the domestic and international terminals began at 9 am on Sunday.
After suspending operations on Friday, the airport authorities had said the airport would become operational from 3 pm on Sunday. However, favourable weather conditions over the last two days, helped improve the situation. The airport had remained closed for around a fortnight last year during this time.
