SpiceJet deploys dedicated freighters to ferry vital supplies
SpiceJet has deployed its fleet of five dedicated freighters to carry fresh fruits and vegetables, cold chain medical supplies, medicines, medical devices for various state governments, medical and pharma companies, international retailers and farmer bodies in this joint war against Covid-19.
Ajay Singh, chairman and managing director, SpiceJet, said, “We will do as much as we can to help our Government and fellow citizens in the fight to defeat coronavirus. Corona warriors all over the country – be it our doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, the police, volunteers – and our government is doing an excellent job. We at SpiceJet are proud and honoured to help our Government and people in whatever small way we can.”
SpiceXpress, SpiceJet’s dedicated cargo arm, has been doing doorstep deliveries of essential supplies, medicines and medical equipment in Bengaluru, Patna, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Raipur, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Visakhapatnam, Srinagar, Thiruvananthapuram, Vadodara, Kochi, Guwahati, Jammu, Lucknow among other cities.
Since early March, SpiceJet has been operating special cargo flights to ferry vital supplies in the fight against coronavirus. SpiceJet helped transport an emergency consignment of IR Thermometers, required to detect Covid-19, to Kolkata from Hong Kong and will be operating more flights this week. Special cargo flights have been operated to Gujarat and other states too.
SpiceJet has operated special cargo flights to Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and other countries taking fresh fruits and vegetables and helping Indian farmers maintain continuity of their supply chains.
SpiceJet is also operating dedicated freighter services from Chennai and Vishakhapatnam to Surat and Kolkata to help India’s shrimp farmers. Till now, shrimp hatcheries used to face a lot of problems in transporting seeds in the absence of dedicated flights leading to a high mortality rate of shrimp seeds which in turn led to heavy losses.
