Tailwinds for international cargo exports from Pune airport

Pune: Six months after international cargo export facility got off to a start at Pune airport, it seems to have finally caught tailwind.
Two more airlines — Air India and Jet Airways — are keen to board the cargo bandwagon.
To date, SpiceJet had been the lone airline carrying cargo from the airport to Dubai.
Air India sources said that cargo facility will start in a month's time after they receive a nod from the company's regional headquarters in Mumbai.
"We have been working on the same for sometime now and are in the last phase of getting approval from our regional headquarters. The approval is likely to reach us in less than a month's time with most formalities having been completed. After receiving the same, we will start the process of exporting cargo from the facility to Dubai. We have been keen on starting the same and it is going to happen very soon," an Air India official told TOI.
