Its a pity - the city of Coimbatore is growing fast at the global level and yet the airport does not cater to international flights except for the meagre Sharjah flight . Yes it is neat and tidy but it is also getting a bit cramped. The Government at the Centre and State could look into Coimbatore as a potential for international flights. The private domestic airlines had success when they were offered permission to fly there. I feel if foreign airlines are given permission to do so they will meet with success too. In domestic flights Indian airlines did not show much regard to suitable travel times to and from Coimbatore In the international side Air India has not shown any interest at all. I feel they think it would be a loss for them to fly there. So since they are not going to lose out on anything foreign airlines or other private airlines of India could be given permission to fly to Coimbatore on international routes.
