Hyderabad: GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL) on Saturday said it has inked two tripartite agreements – one with SpiceJet and Ras Al Khaimah International Airport and the other with Airbus and the Telangana government.
GMR group said the MoU with Ras Al Khaimah International Airport and SpiceJet has been signed to promote exports of agricultural products from India to UAE and its neighbouring countries via Hyderabad and to create a dedicated freight corridor to leverage the agro and farming sector potential from Telangana and its neighbouring regions.
This has been done in line with the Ministry of Civil Aviation’s (MoCA) Krishi Udan Scheme to boost agro product exports and aid farmers in transporting agricultural products.
Special arrangements are being made for handling the goods both at exporting and destination airports and the target markets for this initiative includes Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Bahrain, GMR group said.
On the other hand, the MoU between Airbus and Telangana government has been inked to develop a proof of concept to explore IoT (Internet of Things) sensor-based monitoring of environment at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport as part of sustainable aviation.
Under this MoU, GHIAL will allow the Airbus BizLab to deploy and test its AvIPSUM solution, which is a platform that combines IoT, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and data analytics.
This will be utilized to measure air, weather, noise and all elements contributing to carbon footprint, thus building an emission inventory database that will help analyse and create interventions and recommendations of high impact areas.
The solution will enable faster decision making on new initiatives and help monitor the progress of environmental clearances for these new initiatives, GMR group added.
