Mumbai: Budget carrier SpiceJet’s freighter divison SpiceXpress has launched its scheduled cargo services to Singapore, connecting Mumbai, Bengaluru and Chennai with the first flight carrying 13 tonnes of cargo operated to the Changi Airport.

The scheduled cargo service on the new routes will be operated twice a week with a Boeing 737-700/800 freighter, SpiceJet said in a release.

In addition to Singapore, SpiceXpress also operates scheduled cargo flights to Hong Kong and Bangladesh, it 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 Southeast Asia. Singapore is also well-positioned as a springboard for SpiceXpress into other markets such as Europe and Australia,” said SpiceJet Chairman and Managing Director Ajay Singh.

With a network spanning 63 domestic and 50 international destinations and a fleet of 19 cargo planes, SpiceXpress is capable of flying over 600 tonnes of cargo daily to domestic and international destinations, the airline said.

“Changi Airport Group (CAG) has been engaging SpiceJet for several years to mount scheduled services to Singapore. 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,” said Lim Ching Kiat, managing director of air hub development, CAG.
