RAK airport boosts Indian trade links with agri and farming deal

Trade operations between Ras Al Khaimah and India have been boosted by a three-way deal signed between the emirate’s airport, Hyderabad International Airport and Indian low-cost carrier SpiceJet.

The agreement will establish a dedicated freight corridor through which agri and farming products from centrally located Telangana and neighbouring regions can be sent over to the UAE.

Target markets include Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah as well as Bahrain.
Specially designed equipment will be used to transport goods through the dedicated freighter aircraft of SpiceJet, while Ras Al Khaimah International Airport will provide infrastructural and local support for the goods and organise onward connection to other Middle East countries.

Sanjay Khanna, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah International Airport, said: “Perishable goods is a growing market for air cargo. Ensuring that these delicate and short shelf life products reach the customer unspoiled with minimal waste and loss is essential and hence we are committed to assist and ensure smooth movement of cargo, support direct and point to point service and provide the finest quality of service to meet the growing demands from our consumers.
