Group to study India's cargo growth
India’s Civil Aviation Economic Advisory Council has set up a working group to study the country’s air cargo industry and recommend the best way to handle expected future growth.
According to the Ministry of Civil Aviation, the 19-member panel includes officials from Air India, Jet Airways, Singapore Airlines and Lufthansa Cargo as well as representatives from Airbus and Boeing.
The panel is tasked with painting a picture of air cargo as it currently exists in India and the potential for growth. They also will study the current handling and security systems that are in operation and suggest improvements. Recommending policy initiatives is another goal of the group.
The body will first report its findings to the Ministry of Civil Aviation on March 17.
