January 22, 2019: SpiceXpress has announced the launch of its dedicated freighter services between Guwahati and Hong Kong. To start with, SpiceXpress, the dedicated air cargo arm of SpiceJet, will operate a weekly flight between Guwahati and Hong Kong.

The first flight recently took off from Guwahati’s Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport carrying a consignment of fresh fruits and vegetables. With this launch, SpiceXpress has become the first airline to connect North East India with South East Asia through a freighter route.

The company has deployed its Boeing 737 freighter on the route with an approximate carrying capacity of 18 tonnes.

SpiceXpress sees a huge potential for exports from North East India and plans to add connecting weekly flights each from Silchar and Imphal to Hong Kong thereby taking the total tally to three flights per week between the regions. Besides fresh fruits and vegetables, SpiceXpress also plans to start export of exotic tea and kiwi wines from Arunachal Pradesh.

“The dedicated cargo flights to Hong Kong will help bring in huge opportunities for the North East region and allow them to expand their market outreach to the international markets. This in turn will also elevate the entire economy of the region,” stated the airline in a press release.
