Tamil Nadu CM Stalin Announces International Airport in Hosur

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin announced plans for a new international airport in Hosur on June 27. The airport will cover 2,000 acres and can handle 30 million passengers annually.

Stalin highlighted Hosur’s growing investment and development, stating that the airport would support the socio-economic growth of Hosur, Krishnagiri, and Dharmapuri. This announcement follows Karnataka’s search for land for a second airport in Bengaluru.

Boost to Economy and Connectivity

Tamil Nadu Industries Minister TRB Rajaa emphasized that the airport would significantly enhance connectivity and economic growth. Its strategic location near Bengaluru and Chennai, along with Hosur’s robust manufacturing sector, makes it a vital project.

Rajaa noted that Hosur is well-connected to major business hubs and industrial clusters, including Chennai, Tiruvallur, Sriperumbudur, and Coimbatore. The region hosts major companies like Tata Electronics, TVS, Ashok Leyland, Titan, and Rolls-Royce (IAMPL).

Dr. J Jeyaranjan, vice-chairperson of the Tamil Nadu State Planning Commission, called the airport a game-changer, enhancing infrastructure and attracting more investments.

Metro Extension

Tamil Nadu is also pushing for the Bengaluru Metro to extend to Hosur. The Yellow Line, connecting Bommasandra and RV Road, is expected to be operational by December 2024. The proposed extension to Hosur covers 20.5 km, with 11.7 km in Karnataka and 8.8 km in Tamil Nadu.
