Bangalore In­ter­na­tional Air­port Lim­ited (BIAL) launched a skills devel­op­ment pro­gramme for cargo han­dling staff at the Kem­pe­gowda In­ter­na­tional Air­port, Ben­galuru (KIAB) un­der the di­rec­tive of the Min­istry of Civil Avi­a­tion (MoCA). The event was in­au­gu­rated by Dr Renu Singh Par­mar, Se­nior Ad­vi­sor, MoCA. The pro­gramme was at­tended by rep­re­sen­ta­tives across the cargo value-chain in­clud­ing air­lines, trade cargo han­dling agen­cies, ground han­dlers and of­fi­cials from other de­part­ments. The one-day training pro­gramme high­lighted the devel­op­ment of a strong cargo com­mu­nity, em­pha­sis­ing key as­pects like eco­nomic growth of the com­mu­nity and global recog­ni­tion of the in­dus­try amongst oth­ers.

In yet an­other devel­op­ment in the cargo business, Ben­galuru Cus­toms have now waived off the Cargo Cus­toms Ser­vice Provider (CCSP) charges to cargo cus­to­di­ans (MABB and AISATS) at KIAB, a first for this air­port since it be­gan cargo op­er­a­tions in 2008. This charge was a cost re­cov­ery charge for the pro­vi­sion of cus­toms’ fa­cil­i­ties at the air cargo ter­mi­nals. This waiver will give the cargo op­er­a­tors a com­pet­i­tive pric­ing ad­van­tage that will boost the cargo and courier business at KIAB. This re­duc­tion was ef­fec­tive from April 1, 2016. BIAL is com­mit­ted to cre­at­ing an ecosys­tem that sup­ports and pro­pels the growth of not just Kar­nataka, but the en­tire south In­dian re­gion in the global cargo sup­ply chain. To sus­tain this growth in the long term, it con­tin­ues to en­hance and build on its world­class in­fra­struc­ture, stan­dards, best prac­tices and in­tro­duces ini­tia­tives to en­sure that it con­sis­tently raises the bar in eas­ing the move­ment of goods and prod­ucts to and from South In­dia.
