Mumbai Airport touches record cargo import & export, in COVID-19 times: Manoj Singh

Despite transport constraints and stringent regulations due to COVID-19, Mumbai Airport handles 12000 tonnes of export and 9000 tonnes of import particularly during this lockdown period. Talking in the second digital conclave of CargoTalk, Manoj Singh, Senior Vice President & Head – Cargo, Mumbai International Airport, says, “We, as a stakeholders, have really worked hard to keep the things moving. It is not possible to achieve these numbers without the combination of all the stakeholders working toward the same goal.”
“On an average, Mumbai Airport witnesses eight to nine cargo flights per day with export flights operating mainly to the U.S., Germany, South Africa, France and the United Kingdom. With this, I can see that the freighter movement will possibly increase because there is paucity and challenge on the international passenger flights.
