Cargo, Default — By on February 27, 2012 at 4:19 am

Competition is assured once Multimodal International Hub and Airport at Nagpur (MIHAN) is ready to take off.. Hyderabad-based GMR which has taken over that city’s airport has massive plans to enter cargo hub business. Its advantage over Nagpur is already developed infrastructure. GMR claims due to low congestion and speedy process, Hyderabad can be a transit destination to fly to other centres in south and central It is India as well as internationally. The company is wooing passengers by showcasing the choice of airlines using the airport as well as new infrastructure. There are similar plans on the cargo front too. The company is already has a certified cold storage for pharmaceutical industry which will provide a chunk of the air cargo. Hyderabad already has several pharma industries that provide the initial cargo to take-off, he said. “Cargo is expected to be generated from south as well as central India including Nagpur, until at least the city comes up with its own cargo facility,” he added. Mihan is also largely based on a similar plan of attracting passengers as well as cargo. Vilas Kale, former president of Vidarbha Economic Development Council (VED), accepted that GMR would pose competition to Mihan.
