In a good news, SpiceXpress, the cargo wing of SpiceJet has started trial of cargo services from Delhi to Indore. A Cargoliner B737 will operate for 15 days on a trial basis.
The new cargo service will operate from Indore to Delhi and it will fly through Ahmedabad, Pune and Bengaluru before reaching Delhi.
However, the regular run of the new service will depend on the outcome of trial performance of the cargo throughput. According to sources, in the next couple of days officials of the airlines, AAICLAS and exporters of Indore could meet soon to establish better coordination among all the stakeholders.
SpiceJet started a dedicated freighter business last year, aiming to ship everything from electronics, apparel to food products. Cargo business provides cushion to the airlines in a cut-throat Indian aviation market where passenger fares don’t generate enough profitability.
