AAICLAS will open 8 new airport cargo terminals in 3 months: CEO

Keku Bomi Gazder, chief executive officer, AAI Cargo Logistics and Allied Services Company (AAICLAS), informed that it will open 7 to 8 airport cargo terminals across the county in next three months and will soon have one in the Pune Airport as well.

He was responding to a comment by Roland Weil, VP, sales cargo, Frankfurt Airport, on his wish to see a direct international cargo flight from AAI controlled Pune Airport to Frankfurt, during the Global Auto SCM Virtual Summit 2020 organised by the Indian Transport & Logistics News (

Presented by Frankfurt Airport, the five edition of the event was a virtual summit due to restrictions on gatherings.

“We will be making an integrated cargo terminal at Pune. Cargo is accepted and moved from Pune Airport although it is completely domestic. But as we move forward we would like to make international services happen. If I take this question to a pan India level, AAI will be opening 7-8 terminals in various airports across the country in next three months,” said Keku Gazder.

“There is a surge in inbound cargo to our terminals. For example, we are getting huge freighter loads of cargo coming into Chennai, especially automotive. We want to grow this in a more structured way. Soon automotive will have to fight with pharma for the airfreight space. This is not going to be either-or, but it will be and. We are not going to sacrifice one for the other. As much is a lifesaving activity for the government as well as a moral responsibility for all of us, it is also important that the wheels of commerce continue to move,” he added.
