SpiceXpress, the air cargo arm of India’s Spicejet airline launched in October last year, has announced plans to treble its fleet by the end of the 2020 financial year. Currently the freighter fleet comprises two Boeing 737NG freighters and four more are expected to be added by March 2021. SpiceXpress recently launched its freighter service on the Guwahati – Hong Kong route, becoming the first airline to connect north east India and south east Asia with a dedicated freighter service. The airline sees huge potential in the north east, especially in the fruit and vegetable market, and plans to connect all the seven north eastern states with Guwahati, creating a cargo hub for the entire region.
