SpiceJet has added Sudan and South Korea to its international cargo network and started operating flights to both the countries since last week, carrying pharma and cargo supplies.
The budget carrier deployed its Boeing 737 freighter aircraft to carry 16 tonnes of cargo supplies to Khartoum in Sudan via Ras Al-Khaimah and another 16 tonnes of cargo from Delhi to Incheon in South Korea via Kolkata.
“Our maiden cargo flight to Sudan marks a major milestone for SpiceJet. We will be actively using Ras Al-Khaimah airport as a hub for our cargo operations to Africa and CIS countries in the times to come. With our first cargo flight to Incheon in South Korea we have made a significant addition to our cargo network in East Asia,” SpiceJet Chairman & Managing Director Ajay Singh said.
SpiceJet has operated special cargo flights to and from Cebu, Huangzhou, Tashkent, Baghdad, Cambodia, Guangzhou, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Bangkok, Colombo, Dubai, Kabul, Myanmar, Sharjah, Male, Kuala Lumpur, Ukraine and a host of other places. Since the nation-wide lockdown began, SpiceJet has transported 10,600 tons of cargo on 1620 flights.
