AIR TRANSPORTATION

Air transportation

Air freight accounts of 35 per cent of modal share by value of goods transported such as high value goods, temperature sensitive and perishable commodities.

In the Aviation sector, focus will be on development of air freight stations (AFS) and co-locate such facilities within multimodal logistics parks (MMLPs) wherever possible. Further, integration of connecting modes of transport such as road, rail and coastal shipping with the air cargo community systems (ACCS) of individual airports will be essential to improve efficiency and increase modal share.
