BJP President Amit Shah on Saturday unofficially became the ‘first passenger’ to have walked through the brand new international airport here, which will open shortly to the public.

The Kerala government tried its best to thwart the landing of Shah, but it had to bend after the intervention of the civil aviation authorities in Delhi.

The date of inauguration is yet to be finalised.
