In January 2019, a meeting which was chaired by Anantkumar Hegde, then MoS for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, it was decided that Air Cargo handling facilities would be launched at Belagavi airport soon by utilizing the old Airport terminal.
Hence we field a RTI to know the current status of the same.
The RTI reply says –
In this regard, it is to inform you that the Security Inspection Committee has inspected the Old Terminal Building (OTB) for a feasibility study to convert the OTB to Cargo Facility. The action will be taken accordingly on receipt of the report of the said Committee.
This means the feasibility report of conversion of the Old Terminal building to a Cargo facility is yet to be received by AAI Cargo Logistics & Allied Services Company Ltd (An Aai Subsidiary).
Hence even after a year, the feasibility report is awaited.
