Trials of new cold chain cargo facility start at Bengaluru airport


Air India SATS Airport Services (AISATS) has launched trial operations at the perishable cargo handling centre at Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru, aka Bangalore.
AISATS Coolport to open by January at the airport is a 11,000-square metre facility with an annual capacity to handle 40,000 tonnes of temperature-sensitive cargo, including pharmaceuticals and perishables.
It offers 17 dedicated cold rooms, and will house a drug control lab, plant quarantine inspection and certification office, reported London's Air Cargo News.
It will be supplemented by temperature-controlled queue lanes for unitised shipments and cool trollies to ensure the integrity of the cold chain to and from the aircraft.
"We believe that this will boost exports and imports of temperature-sensitive products," said AISATS chief executive Mike Chew.It would also bolster the government of Karnataka's vision of turning the state into a preferred air cargo hub for south India, he said.
Bengaluru, in Karnataka state - one of India's leading pharmaceutical and produce regions - has seen a steady 15 per cent annual increase in perishable cargo volume.
