Hyderabad airport set to handle 100,000 tonnes

Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) expects to cross the 100,000 tonnes milestone in the current financial year.
The cargo facility at RGIA can handle 150,000 tonnes per annum and has a pharma zone for temperature-controlled cargo.
While airfreight volumes in India have grown at a compound annual rate of seven per cent, RGIA recorded a 15 per cent increase in the 2014-15 financial year. 
The airport, opened seven years ago, has been successful in attracting new dedicated freighter capacity, including Turkish Cargo and Qatar Airways Cargo.
The airport is served by 15 international and five domestic airlines that connect Hyderabad to over 16 international and 25 domestic destinations.
The airport boasts a dedicated cargo apron, adjacent to the freight terminal, which can accommodate three B747 freighters.
