A consortium led by India's flag carrier Air-India and Singapore Airport Terminal Services was shortlisted for one of the two ground-handling services for the upcoming Bangalore International Airport.
The group is currently in talks with the Bangalore International Airport on the concession agreement, Singapore Airport said on Wednesday.
Singapore Airport, which faces increasing competition for ground-handling services at Changi airport, is expanding through overseas investments. In May, the company said it signed a 20-year agreement to handle freight at the new airport in Bangalore together with Air-India.
Singapore Airport and Air-India will be tapping cargo volume at the Bangalore airport, which is expected to triple in the next 10 to 15 years from the current annual 120,000 tonnes traffic.
