Chennai Airport Reviews

Chennai International Airport (IATA: MAA, ICAO: VOMM) is the primary airport serving the southern Indian metropolis of Chennai. The airport is spread across the suburban areas of Meenambakkam, Pallavaram and Tirusulam with passenger entry at Tirusulam and cargo entry at Meenambakkam.

The IATA code MAA for the airport is derived from the former name of Chennai, Madras. For the calendar year ending December 2012, it was the third busiest airport in India in terms of both international and overall passenger traffic. Along with Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport and Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport it handles more than half of the air traffic in South Asia.

The domestic and the international terminals are named after former chief ministers of Tamil Nadu, K. Kamaraj and C.N. Annadurai, respectively. It is the first airport in India to have international and domestic terminals adjacent to each other. The airport is the regional headquarters of the Airports Authority of India for the southern region of India comprising the states of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and Kerala and the union territories of Puducherry and Lakshadweep.

As of 2012, the airport handles 13.5 million passengers annually and about 325 aircraft movements a day. The airport is expected to reach saturation by 2016–17, necessitating the construction of a second international airport.
