Hi Roger,Roger wrote:Hello everyone, I've been following this discussion for a long time now and have been tempted to join in to contribute many, many times. This news has made the difference! I've been living in Melbourne for over 12 years now and have had to endure long journey times and stop overs to get back home to Madurai, until now. This flight will mean I have just one stop over in Singapore and no hassles of waiting in Chennai. Thank you to all the seniors and vocal advocates of our airport in this forum, for all your hard work, perseverance and persistence. I sincerely hope that travellers make good use of the flight and that it becomes a daily soon.
I still remember visiting the airport as a kid, on school field trips, to see the one daily flight from Madras come in and take off an hour later! There was no security and no queues and we could run up the stairs to the balcony to see the shiny Indian Airlines aircraft. Thinking back now, the old airport building seemed as big as one of the bungalows in the Madura Coats club campus at Kochadai!
