Trivandrum Airport

Trivandrum International Airport (TRV)


Trivandrum International Airport is the principle airport for passengers flying to Kerala province in India, although it also serves as a transit point for flights destined to Sri Lanka, the Middle East and the Maldives. It is a relatively small airport just under four miles (6km) from Thiruvananthapuram (previously known as Trivandrum).

Trivandrum International Airport is not an ideal airport as queues are generally long and service isn't that efficient. However, the international terminal boasts both WiFi and air-conditioning.
