On Wednesday, a new international air cargo terminal was launched at the Devi Ahilya Bai Holkar Airport in Indore by the Airport Authority of India’s (AAI) subsidiary at a cost of Rs 2.26 crore. The new facility has been inaugurated by the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Shivraj Singh Chouhan. The minister also flagged off a parcel as a token to its destination, according to a PTI report. On the occasion, the CM said that after the start of the new international air cargo facility in Indore’s Devi Ahilya Bai Holkar Airport, machinery, diamond and other jewellery, leather products, export of medicines, auto parts as well as fruits and vegetables will get a boost.

According to the Chief Minister, in view of the growing number of air passengers from the city of Indore, it was necessary to expand the airport. Therefore, the state government of Madhya Pradesh will give 22 acres of land adjacent to the Devi Ahilya Bai Holkar Airport to the AAI, Chouhan said. The CM while addressing Indore Lok Sabha MP Shankar Lalwani’s request, said logistics facilities will be established in the 20 kilometres radius of the international airport.
