THERE is no domestic movement of perishables - flowers and vegetables - from Coimbatore International Airport that serves India's cities and towns between Bengaluru and Chennai because of the coronavirus lockdown, reports Chennai's Hindu daily.

Currently, products related to healthcare sector and essential needs are sent from here. Industries across the region, including Tiruppur and Erode, can make use of the daily flight, said the report.



Industrial activity has just commenced in Coimbatore district. Those who had finished products had taken permission during the lockdown and moved the goods. So, only the products that are partially completed will be shipped in the near future.



Some industries are using surface transport to move goods from Chennai or Bengaluru. These units can make use of the flight facility. Gold is another major commodity that is brought to Coimbatore by air by the jewellery units. These units have also just re-started work. And purchase of bullion is expected to go up in the coming days, said the reports.
