SpiceXpress, the dedicated cargo arm of SpiceJet, has launched scheduled freighter flights connecting Mumbai, Bengaluru and Chennai with Singapore.
The airline will deploy its Boeing B737F/800F aircraft on these routes. The 1st flight departed on 20th February carrying 13 tonnes of cargo. The scheduled flights will operate twice-a-week to Singapore’s Changi Airport.
SpiceXpress in addition to Singapore operates scheduled cargo flights to HongKong and Bangladesh.
Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, SpiceJet said:
We are delighted to commence our scheduled freighter operations to Singapore. This development would strengthen air trades between the two countries by providing faster and seamless logistics solutions. In addition, this strategic move would help Spicexpress build its network in south east Asia. Singapore is also well-positioned as a springboard for Spicexpress into other markets such as Europe and Australia.
Lim Ching Kiat, Managing Director of Air Hub Development, CAG said:
CAG has been engaging Spicejet for several years to mount scheduled services to Singapore, hence we are pleased to welcome Spicejet to Changi’s family of airlines. In these challenging times when air cargo capacity is constrained, the introduction of Spicejet’s freighter service is much welcomed. The additional capacity helps support the transportation of essential goods such as medical and food supplies between the two countries.
SpiceXpress was also the 1st airline to launch freighter services from Leh, India.
