Bengaluru airport exports 1,425 tonnes of perishables in April

Bengaluru: Bengaluru airport exports 1,425 tonnes of perishables in April
Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru processed 1,425 tonnes of perishable cargo in April.
The countrywide lock-down and subsequent blockade of district borders by the Karnataka government have had a significant impact on the movement of cargo. As a result, export of perishables saw a 49 per cent drop, from 2,770 tonnes processed during the same month last year. The drop was largely owing to restriction on transportation, shortage of farm workers and various other issues faced by farmers and shippers.
Doha was the top destination for perishables from Bengaluru, having received 834 tonnes; Dubai was second, with 146 tonnes, and London third at 110 tonnes. Ten airlines, including two Indian carriers, transported perishables, from various parts of Karnataka, to 28 international destinations.
To facilitate the export of perishable cargo, infrastructure at the Bengaluru airport has been built to provide a solution for the rapid distribution of perishable cargo, making it the most-preferred cargo airport in South India.
