AAI gives nod to cargo terminal at Kanpur airport

After successful operation of passenger services, Kanpur Airport has got theoretical consent from the Airports Authority of India (AAI) to make a cargo terminal at the airport. According to Jameel Khalique, Director, Kanpur Airport, “The goods can be sent up to 10 tonnes from this port. Loading-unloading of goods is expected to start from next financial year.”
Under the UDAN scheme, the operation of the Kanpur-Delhi flight started in July this year. After this, the private airlines are providing direct services to Mumbai and Kolkata. A lot of business opportunities will be created after the start of the cargo service in view of tremendous potential in the field of trade and industry. In view of import-export data from Kanpur, it was decided to build a cargo terminal at the Kanpur Airport.
