APEDA initiative connects agri-export via direct flights from Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport

A shipment of green peas and round green brinjal was sent off today to Sharjah, by AirIndia Express. This consignment was flagged off at Lal Bahadur Shastri International airport, Varanasi. With this, the stage is set for more exports of Agri-products including GI products from the Varanasi region and nearby areas through Varanasi airport.

Earlier, the Varanasi airport did not have facilities for direct exports, due to which the exporters were bound to route their exports either through Lucknow or Delhi. This was a deterrent for promoting export due to additional cost of transportation and time to be taken in local transportation and possibilities of spoiling the produce due to handling. Specifically, in the present COVID-19 situation, the movements were getting restricted, and FPOs were in big distress to sell their produce.

With concerted efforts of all the concerned agencies, now Lal Bahadur Shastri International Airport at Varanasi has a full-scale functional window for all clearances needed for Agri-Export.
