Madurai: Cargo movement at Madurai airport resumed on Tuesday after SpiceJet came forward to operate cargo flights for six days. It has been 20 days since the last cargo flight landed in Madurai airport.

However, with road transport and other connectivity coming to a standstill, air cargo became unviable. Traders and cargo agents were affected due to disruption in movement.

In this backdrop, SpiceJet has come forward to operate cargo flights connecting various cities. Airport authorities said that the airline would operate on Coimbatore - Madurai, Madurai - Chennai and Madurai - Bengaluru routes in the next six days.
