Srinagar: Cargo operations to commence from new complex at airport

Srinagar: Authorities at the Srinagar airport on Tuesday announced the commencement of cargo operations from a new domestic cargo complex built at a cost of over Rs 14 crore.

An official was quoted by a local portal as saying, “In this new complex we have made provisions for cold storage, sensitive goods, and dangerous goods also. This was not available in the old Cargo complex. We have installed two X ray machines for screening of the cargo. The entire complex is covered with CCTV monitoring to ensure safety and security of the Cargo.”

The new complex will be entirely managed by the airport's own staff on a Regulated Agent basis where exporters and importers of cargo in the catchment area of Srinagar airport can look forward to improved services, improved facilities and efficient prompt handling of their valuable cargo from our airport.

The cargo can be sent to 11 airports in India, with a maximum capacity of 80 metric tonnes, by the six airlines which operate from Srinagar.

Kashmir’s peak import of handicrafts is worth Rs 1,500 crore. Due to recent slump in business, the numbers have been reduced, but the enhanced capacity can give a boost to the ailing sector.
