Kozhikode: Cochin international airport at Nedumbsssey was temporarily closed till 2 pm today due to inundation.
This was done after water entered the operations area of the airport.
Initially, the plan was to impose restriction from 4 am to 7 am.
The last time water entered the airport was in October 2013 after the opening of Idamalayar dam. Later, a flood water canal was built to save the airport from inundation.
