Air Cargo Complex:

In view of the fact that TIA was emerging as a main import/export interface for the international trade, a study was conducted by Asian Development Bank in 1995. The study resulted in the preparation of a TIA Master Plan for the year 2000, 2005 and 2015. In respect of the existing cargo building, the major problem addressed and taken into account during the formulation of the master plan was the 'scattered and inadequate cargo facilities at three different locations'. Total floor area covered by these three facilities stood only at 3500 sq. meters. Therefore, in view of problems with cargo safety, cargo building capacity and cargo handling management, the construction of a centralized Air Cargo Complex was inevitable. Brought in operation since 2058/9/2, Air Cargo Complex is featured as follows:

Ground level 7700 square meters
Second level 2500 square meters
Total: 10200 square meters
Full design capacity 24000 ton for Export
  12000 ton for Import
Building constructed under Phase 1 16000 ton for Export
  10000 ton for Import

Capacity Improvement Scenario:

The phase 1 building is expected to cater to handling demand for about 10 years from now.
