First International Cargo Shipped from Lohegaon Airport to Dubai
The international cargo export facility at Pune airport has started functioning. The rst consignment, consisting of fruits and vegetables, was shipped to Dubai on a SpiceJet ight. The facility was inaugurated last month by Pune MP and Pune Airport Advisory Committee Chairman Anil Shirole. Almost a fortnight after the facility was kicked off, the custom authorities managing and handling the facility said that the response had not been as expected and only a few airlines have registered for the service. Currently, a total of four international ights operate from the Pune airport. They include two to Dubai (Air India and SpiceJet), one to Abu Dhabi (Jet Airways) and one to Frankfurt (Lufthansa).
