Enable cargo movement on priority to save the trade

Eleven AAICLAS operated domestic Common User Terminals (CUTs) at T2 & T3 Airports, have been closed for the movement of Domestic and International Cargo due to non-compliance of BCAS-RA norms by AAICLAS, said Yashpal Sharma, President, Air Cargo Forum India. AAICLASS has sighted commercial loss on running of these facilities so have not done needful. He added, “With the sizeable market for international & domestic air cargo moving out of these airports this current deadlock of RA3 facility at all these airports must be resolved by AAICLAS & MoCA on top priority. This situation, which has caused a serious challenge for the growth of air cargo industry and needs to be relooked into favourably in the interest of shippers in the catchment area of these airports if the country has to move towards the targeted growth of air cargo i.e. 10 Million Mt by 2030-31 set by the Government(MoCA) itself.”
