New cargo terminal at Ahmedabad airport to be operational by next week

Ahmedabad: The newly built cargo terminal at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International (SVPI) airport in Ahmedabad is all set to be operational by next week. With necessary approvals in place, a trial run was also conducted on Tuesday with all the freight operators to acclimatize them with the operations and functioning of cargo handling at the new terminal, according to top sources.

“All necessary approvals are in place and the trial runs were conducted. It is expected that the new cargo terminal will be operational over the next ten days,” said a source.

The upcoming cargo terminal, which is set up at the Terminal-III of the SVPI airport which was formerly the Haj terminal, will have an estimated capacity of handling at least 2,500 metric tonne cargo in a single day as is learnt from top sources. With the expansion of the cargo terminal, the city airport will begin to handle more volumes of international cargo besides domestic supplies.

A source privy to the development also said that the new terminal will have an updated security in place along with modern equipment to supplement handling of large volumes of cargo more effectively.
