Apata informs that dedicated cargo flights are now starting from 25th Feb. Spice jet is offering dedicated cargo plane.
This will carry mostly perishable foods including marine cargo.
This will greatly boost the brand Visakhapatnam as this is the first dedicated cargo flight out of Vizag.
This will boost exports and quality.
Currently, a lot of cargo is going by road to Chennai airport and Hyderabad airport for onward exports due to a lack of cargo planes from Visakhapatnam.
APATA has requested spice jet to give us a second plane to carry pharma cargo as there is immense potential. Spice jet CEO agreed to start that also once this current flight is a success.
The present routing is
Chennai -Vizag – Calcutta
Chennai- Vizag – Surat.
On alternate days.
11.50 am arrival and 1.10 pm departure.
APATA thank MP Shri MVV Satyanarayana and Airport director for facilitating this flight.
APATA request that the N5 Taxi track and PTT also to be commissioned soon to facilitate more slots during peak hours.
