Dedicated import cargo processing area established

A dedicated import cargo processing area has been established at the Tiruchi international airport. The facility catering exclusively to import cargo dispatched in foreign airlines has been created adjoining the existing export freight terminal.

The need for a dedicated import cargo processing area was felt as the one which existed earlier was converted into a full-fledged international courier terminal which is awaiting commissioning for several months now.

The new area created to exclusively handle import cargo has been set up on over 150 square metres. It has been split into three segments – storage area, examination point and delivery area.

A ramp has been provided to connect the import cargo processing area with the export freight terminal for easier movement of men and materials. The import processing area has access to the city side of the airport which has witnessed steady rise only in export cargo movements over the years.
