PEOPLE'S AIR Cargo (PAIR) has started operations at its newly-constructed cargo warehouse facility adjacent to Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

The facility, which covers 17,000 square metres and was built at a cost of US$26.2 million, will be serviced by the Philippine Airport and Ground Services (PAGS) and is the largest, most modern of its type in the country, PAIR Cargo president, Jeffrey Cheng, said.

The company has also built a four-storey office building and warehouse, and an aircraft apron to accommodate several widebody planes for easy loading and unloading. The warehouse has 200,000 cubic-metre cargo storage capacity.

Freight forwarders have welcomed the new facility as the present NAIA cargo terminal has reached saturation point.
