Celebi Delhi Cargo Terminal Management India has decided to invest ₹150 crore to bolster infrastructure at its facility in Delhi. The company, which is a part of Celebi Aviation, operates two cargo terminals with a combined capacity of 7,00,000 tons per annum at the Delhi airport. Earlier, one of the two terminals was exclusively catering to Jet Airways, which shut operations in April 2019. After the airline stopped flying, the terminal remained non-operational, but the company re-opened the refurbished terminal and started handling cargo of the newly launched Akasa Air.
Celebi Aviation forayed into cargo and warehousing services in 2009 with the setting up of Celebi Delhi Cargo Terminal Management India Pvt, a joint venture with Delhi International Airport Ltd, said Chief Executive Officer, Kamesh Peri, adding that the company will invest as per the emerging requirement of the business. Apart from Akasa Air, the company is also looking for other customers to use the refurbished cargo terminal and has inked a pact with dedicated freighter operator QuikJet to handle its flights. QuikJet is expected to operate its services with two departures and arrivals per day to and from Delhi Airport. Two other operators -- budget carrier IndiGo and cargo airline Pradhaan Air -- have already commenced their dedicated freighter services from Delhi airport.
