India-headquartered airline, SpiceJet, has launched twice-weekly services between Singapore and three Indian cities – Bangalore, Chennai and Mumbai. The carrier’s first flight from Chennai landed at Changi Airport on 20 February at 1115 hrs. Operated under SpiceJet’s cargo arm SpiceXpress using a B737F aircraft, the new services will provide additional airfreight capacity between Singapore and India.
SpiceJet launched its cargo operations under SpiceXpress in September 2018 and has since expanded its fleet to 19 cargo aircraft, including five widebody aircraft. Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, SpiceJet has aided in the transportation of critical goods and medical supplies internationally. The airline has emerged as India’s largest air cargo operator by fleet and cargo carriage
