NEW DELHI, AUG 14, 2019: THE Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Naval Air Enclave (NAE), Kochi and Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) was signed on Aug 08, 2019 in a formal function held at CIAL. Captain Satish Kumar S, Officer-in-Charge, NAE and Mr ACK Nair, Airport Director CIAL, signed the document on behalf of both organisations.

The memorandum was signed in connection with commencement of naval air operations from the NAE, a naval aviation facility comprising an independent dispersal, aircraft hangar, administrative building and taxy track, located on the northwest side of CIAL. Military aircraft would use the CIAL runway for take off and landing and the NAE taxy track for proceeding to and from the dispersal / hangar. The Memorandum of Understanding lays down Standard Operating Procedures and their adherence by CIAL and the Indian Navy, for ensuring safe, secure and uninterrupted military air operations. Senior management functionaries of CIAL including Mr AM Shabeer, Executive Director, Mr Sunil Chacko, Chief Financial Officer and Mr Dinesh Kumar C, Head of Operations were present for the function.

The Naval Air Enclave is capable of supporting operations of the highly capable P8I Long Range Maritime Reconnaissance aircraft, which was extensively used to coordinate Search and Rescue Operations off the coast of Kerala and the Lakshadweep Islands in Dec 2017, following Cyclone Ockhi. The optimal exploitation of the NAE would significantly enhance the maritime reconnaissance capability of Southern Naval Command, as also the Indian Navy.
