A short walk and a glimpse of the night view of the first airport in Kerala, the Trivandrum International Airport(TRV), located at Chackai, Thiruvananthapuram. While traveling to London, I was able to get a mesmerizing night view of the Trivandrum Airport. Even though snacks and drinks are slightly on the expensive side there are lot of options and lounges available within the airport.
