April 21, 2020: SpiceJet operated its first-ever freighter flight to Myanmar today carrying medical supplies to the country. On its return leg, the aircraft will carry medical equipment from Myanmar to Delhi.

The airline also operated its maiden cargo-on-seat international flight from Mumbai to Abu Dhabi carrying 15 tons of fresh fruits and vegetables and ensuring that the supply chain for our farmers remains intact.

The airline deployed its Boeing 737 aircraft for both, the cargo-on-seat and freighter flight to Abu Dhabi and Myanmar, respectively.

Ajay Singh, chairman & managing director, SpiceJet, said “We have been continuously expanding our cargo network on both domestic and international routes carrying not just Covid-19 related medical supplies but also ensuring that vital export lines from India to other countries remain intact. We operated our first freighter flight to Myanmar today carrying medical supplies to and from Yangon. Our cargo-on-seat operations have significantly increased from April 7 when we operated India’s first cargo-on-seat flight to operating our first international cargo-on-seat flight to Abu Dhabi today.”

SpiceJet has operated more than 430 cargo flights, including 135 international, since the lockdown began carrying over 3500 tons of cargo.

The airline has also helped Indian farmers maintain continuity of their supply chains in addition to operating dedicated services from Chennai & Vishakhapatnam to Surat & Kolkata.
