Indian Mango Exports at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport Surged by 318% In 2023

Published Sep 16, 2023
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) in India has experienced a significant increase in mango exports, reaching 4.7 thousand tons in 2023. This growth is due to the airport's expertise in handling perishable goods and its role in expanding the global presence of India's delectable mangoes. The recent approval granted by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for the Indian mangoes exports to the United States (US) has further boosted the growth. The airport has created a dedicated temperature-controlled perishable facility with an annual capacity of 1.5 million metric tons (mt), ensuring mangoes arrive in perfect condition. In Feb-20, CSMIA inaugurated the world's largest airport-based Export Cold Zone, handling 150 thousand mt of cargo annually. The airport's innovative solutions, including the Air Cargo Community System and AMAX, have reduced costs, improved efficiency, and enhanced agility in cargo operations.
