Jetex customs clears first-ever 25 tonnes of explosive cargo

Jetex Oceanair customs has cleared 25 tonnes of explosive cargo, consisting of 1500 pkgs, in a chartered light, TU-204C aircraft. “The cargo for Almaty has been handled from CCU Airport for the first time and perhaps is the single largest uplift of class I DG cargo in India,” informs Jaideep Raha, Managing Director, Jetex Oceanair. The explosives were packed into the special thermally insulated, water-proof and crush-proof boxes, shipped from Mumbai. Raha said, “The boxes were very carefully looked in an operation that begun on May 26 night and carried on till late next morning. The area around the aircraft was cordoned off and utmost security measures were taken to avoid any untoward incident.”
