Air India (AI) will build a cargo hub in Kerala as part of increasing its freight movements from the country.

The hub would be developed either in Thiruvananthapuram or Kozhikode, said K.M. Unni, Air India (AI) Board member and head of the airline’s engineering department, at Calicut International Airport, Karipur, on Thursday.

Mr. Unni said the cargo hub would go a long way in enhancing the carrier’s freight movement from the State.

He said a study of the cargo movement potential would be done before finalising the destination.

However, Mr. Unni hinted that the cargo hub will most likely be built at the Thiruvananthapuram International Airport.
