Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru (KIAB) plans to strengthen its cargo business
yellow line

MUMBAI, December 3, 2015: India is witnessing renewed optimism in its economic opportunities for doing business. The ‘Make in India’ initiative of the government with key focus on accelerating the domestic business environment is boosting India’s potential as a more attractive trading partner. The Indian air cargo sector is poised to gather momentum, driven primarily by renewed manufacturing focus and the proliferation of the e-commerce industry. Both these trends are highly dependent on making goods and services available at the right place, within the fastest possible time, in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. This has created new opportunities for the development of air cargo in India, with a fillip to attract increased domestic and foreign investment in air cargo infrastructure.

Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru (KIAB) has envisioned for itself a role as the ‘South Indian Cargo Gateway to Global Economies. The airport operator Bangalore International Airport Limited continues to enhance and build on its world-class infrastructure, standards and best practices ensuring that they consistently raise the bar in easing the movement of goods and products to and from South India.

Moving into the eight year of operations, Cargo has become a critical component in the regional supply chain across pharmaceuticals, perishables, electronics, machinery, automotive, textiles for KIAB. The present design capacity of cargo terminals stand is 350,000 MT catering to both the international and domestic air cargo traffic with the option to scale up infrastructure and support systems as required. The airport has seen a phenomenal growth where cargo is concerned.

Underlying this growth is the airport’s robust plan and strategic intent to grow the cargo business. To make it happen, BIAL has invested in developing a world-class cargo infrastructure with state-of-the-art cargo terminals. In 2013, the airside Air Cargo capacity was enhanced with the opening of seven wide-body dedicated freighter aircraft bays with seamless access to the cargo terminal. In 2014 in a pioneering initiative to improve efficiency and accuracy, reduce turnaround times and paper usage, KIAB became the first airport in the country to successfully achieve the IATA e-freight operational compliance.

“KIAB aims to be the engine of economic growth for the region by connecting Bangalore to the world and positioning itself as the Gateway to South India not only for passenger traffic but also for cargo” said Mr. G V Sanjay Reddy, Managing Director, BIAL

AIR CARGO INDIA 2016, the 6th International Biennial Air Cargo event taking place in India provides a platform to interact with global cargo companies and allows participating organizations to explore business opportunities. KIAB is the Silver Sponsor for the AIR CARGO INDIA 2016 scheduled in February from 23 to 25.

Air Freight Market Analysis - October 2015
yellow line

Released 2nd December 2015

Key points from our full report on air freight markets in October:
• A. FTKs were 0.5% higher in October year-on-year, but this was due to weakness in the year ago period - volumes actually declined in October compared to September ;
• Some of the Q3 improvement in air cargo growth for European carriers reversed in October, with FTKs up just 0.2% year-on-year;
• But indicators of business confidence and trade to/from the region suggest there will be modest growth ahead;
• Asia Pacific FTKs remain weak, up 0.3% in October year-on-year, hampered by disappointing trade growth in China;
• Load factors fell further in October, below 44% on a seasonally adjusted basis, which is a level not seen since 2009;
• In addition to recent weakness in cargo demand, there has been continued capacity expansion, mostly from growth in the passenger business;
• The outlook for air freight and world trade remains very fragile with continued weakness in key regions like Asia Pacific;
• That said, indicators in the Eurozone are looking better and globally, exports orders have improved in Q4;
• This suggests that improvements in some regions could prevent further declines in air cargo demand in the months ahead.
