Carriers stop cargo at Delhi in protest
05 / 05 / 2010
FOUR Indian carriers have suspended their cargo operations at Delhi in protest at “unfair practices”.
A spokesperson for GoAir, IndiGo, Kingfisher and SpiceJet said: “Since neither DIAL [Delhi Indira Ghandi International Airport] nor the outsourced agency [Delhi Cargo Service Centre] are listening to our problems, we have decided to suspend our cargo operations from this afternoon.”
He said that the airlines claim, “there is neither infrastructure nor the manpower to handle cargo operations” sufficiently at the airport. Complaints have apparently been repeatedly ignored.
