  • Indian aerospace: India's infant freight sector finds its feet

    News | 30 Jan 2007 00:00

    <P>India's air cargo market is a perfect example of an industry in its infancy. Fewer than 10 freighters operate within the country, but huge growth is expected in the coming years.</P> <P>"Cargo is one sector in our country that we have completely neglected over the years," says civil aviation minister Praful Patel. But he expects India's dedicated air cargo fleet to grow to around 150 aircraft over the next five to 10 years, as the economy continues its rapid expansion.</P> <P>There are only two dedicated freighter operators in India, the well-established Blue Dart Aviation and the recently launched First Flight Couriers, both of which carry express freight on domestic routes.</P> <P>But the market is set to open up. Flyington Freighters is a planned new operator that has already placed firm orders for Airbus A330-200Fs and Boeing 777Fs - the first Indian carrier to order new-build widebody freighters.

    <p>Nagpur airport in central India may be redeveloped into the country's first self-declared hub facility. </p><p>The state of Maharashtra has for years been planning the so-called Multi-Modal International Hub Airport at Nagpur (MIHAN) project, intended to turn the city's underutilised airport into a hub for cargo and passenger aircraft. Development plans are now closer to becoming reality following approval from state governments for a joint-venture company to develop Nagpur airport and surrounding infrastructure.</p><p>The country's Civil Aviation Ministry has publicly supported the plans, saying they will help in particular to greatly increase airfreight traffic in the country, where only a small number of dedicated freighter aircraft currently operate. Maintenance facilities are also planned there, led by Boeing which is setting up shop in India as part of an aircraft sales deal with state-owned Air India.</p><p>Maharashtra Airport Development Co (MADC) project manager Abid Ruhi shttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Indian-government-approves-hub-209130/

    Nagpur Airport will become a key Indian aviation hub if the Maharasthtra State Road Development Corporation approves a feasibility study and masterplan in October.
