Air Asia resumes cargo service

Tiruchi: Days after it suspended lifting overseas cargo, foreign carrier Air Asia resumed lifting freight from the Tiruchi international airport on Friday.

Three shipments meant for different destinations were dispatched by the morning Kuala Lumpur-bound flight much to the relief of stakeholders. Air Asia, which operates three flights a day from Tiruchi to Kuala Lumpur and back, stopped lifting overseas freight from last Saturday putting exporters and other stakeholders in a quandary. Airport sources said that among the three overseas shipments dispatched on Friday, one was fabrics bound for Brunei. The remaining two shipments were perishables bound for Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
