Atlanta Airport in talks with Mumbai, Delhi airports for trade corridors

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is in talks with Mumbai International Airport and Delhi International Airport in India to form trade corridor using cargo community systems as informed by the US airport’s director of air service development Elliott Paige

He was speaking in the latest episode of STAT Media Group’s weekly video series Logistics Tech Dialogues, presented by Kale Logistics Solutions and was responding to a question on how do we create more networks similar to the trade and logistics corridor set up between Atlanta and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol using cargo community system.

Atlanta Airport has a sister airport programme, where they sign an agreement with airports in high growth cities that are target markets for both passenger and cargo and can provide connections to the region they're located in. “So we've been working on those for a number of years. Airports like Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport are examples of that. We're looking to sign one with, either Mumbai or Delhi,” he said.

“I see JFK doing it with London Heathrow, Miami has been doing it with Brussels, Houston with Brussels. This kind of network of airports is already happening and it's about relationship building,” he added.

He also reported that the airport has a lot of pressure from the Indian community in Atlanta to push for both passenger and cargo flights. “They're my friends. So I'm trying to push that and also with my friends in India,” he said.
