The Kochi airport, shut since August 15 due to heavy flooding after rains devastated Kerala, will reopen on August 29, three days later than earlier announced.
 
The airport had yesterday said it would resume operations on August 26, Sunday.
 
Officials said the opening had been put off by three days as 90 per cent of the staff had been affected by Kerala's worst flooding in a century and they needed to report to work.
 
The airport was first closed on August 9, for a few hours, and then on August 15. The Cochin airport is one of three airports in Kerala and also the busiest.
 
The runway, taxi bay, duty-free shops and other areas of international and domestic terminals were also submerged, causing damage to electrical equipment including runway lights.
 
The solar power system of the world's first solar-powered airport also suffered damage in the floods, an official had said.
