Last year, the Kerala Assembly unanimously passed a resolution protesting the privatization of the airport.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had criticized the takeover of the airport by the Adani group, saying it was not for the development of the facility but to protect the interests of the monopolies.

Thiruvananthapuram International Airport is the first of the state’s four airports. Founded in 1932, the airport was owned and operated by the Airports Authority of India.
