SpiceXpress is the freight arm of SpiceJet

SpiceXpress has launched scheduled cargo flights to Singapore as it looks to develop international network.

SpiceJet’s cargo arm will deploy its Boeing 737-700F/800F aircraft on the flights, which will operate to Changi Airport twice per week connecting with Mumbai, Bengaluru and Chennai in India.

The first scheduled flight carrying 13 tonnes of cargo operated on February 20.

The airline said the services could act as a springboard for further network expansion.

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 Southeast Asia. Singapore is also well-positioned as a springboard for SpiceXpress into other markets such as Europe and Australia.”

Lim Ching Kiat, Changi Airport Group managing director of air hub development, added: “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.”
