Thai Airways Commence Cargo Freighter Service From RGIA

Thai Airways, one of the world’s leading airlines, commenced its Cargo Freighter service with a Boeing 747-400F from Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA), Hyderabad. The first flight received a traditional water canon salute welcome in the presence of RGIA and Thai Airways officials. The same aircraft left for Frankfurt later.

This Bangkok–Hyderabad–Frankfurt freight service will mark a new milestone for GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd, as this freight service connects RGIA directly with Fareast and European countries.

Vikram Jaisinghani, Chief Executive Officer of GMR Hyderabad Airport International (GHIAL) said, “We are glad to partner with Thai Airways which is a leader in transport of air cargo. India, and in particular Hyderabad, is fast emerging as an important pharmaceutical manufacturing centre with 70 percent of the exports coming from Hyderabad alone. Thai Airway’s expertise, connectivity and the modern infrastructure at Hyderabad Airport will enable us to offer our customers the best and most reliable infrastructure facility for air cargo transport in South Asia.”
