SpiceJet, India´s second-largest airline, has ferried crucial medical supplies to and from Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Ho Chi Minh City, Colombo, Kabul, and Dubai, amongst other places. SpiceJet´s cargo operations have been significantly boosted by the airline´s passenger aircraft fleet where both its B737 and Q400 aircraft have been operating cargo-on-seat flights.
SpiceJet along with the MGH Group has been planning to further expand its freighter operations and add multiple global routes to its fast-expanding network considering increasing demand for essentials and medical supplies globally.
