Thiruvananthapuram airport gets domestic cargo terminal

The newly developed domestic cargo terminal commenced operations at the Thiruvananthapuram International Airport. The 600 square feet facility has the capacity to handle over 3,500 MT per year. The 24×7 terminal is poised to boost cargo trade from Thiruvananthapuram. The facility provides end-to-end cargo services encompassing cityside handling, security functions, storage and airside handling under close monitoring to ensure safety of the cargo. Besides adding incremental cargo handling capacity to the airport’s cargo infra, the facility will provide an additional choice of services for the trade at the airport. The infrastructure of the new cargo facility is likely to improve the service levels of cargo handling at the domestic terminal. The new facility is equipped to handle perishable goods, with temperature control from 15°C to 25°C. The facility will handle machinery parts, readymade garments, fabrics, dyes, chemicals, valuable cargo, and other commodities.
