The cargo business is not just generating cash and keeping the engines running at a time when the aviation sector the world over is facing its worst existential crisis in decades, SpiceXpress has also become the country’s biggest cargo operator by taking advantage of the lockdown and growing every day.

‘Eliminate Excise, Bring ATF Under GST’

SpiceJet is India’s biggest air cargo operator and the only domestic airline which has a dedicated fleet of freighters.

Published by: BusinessWorld22 May 2020

The Indian aviation sector is in dire need of support if it is to emerge from the adverse effects of the lockdown. Ajay Singh, Chairman & Managing Director, SpiceJet tells Ashish Sinha of BW Businessworld that the government needs to act fast, and act now else Indian carriers may perish for good. Excerpts:

Would you say that two years of hard work on cargo has finally paid off?

There were a lot of doubts and questions on the viability of cargo operations in India when we launched SpiceXpress, our dedicated cargo arm, in September 2018. It was kind of a natural progression for SpiceJet. While our decision may have raised eyebrows then, it was a no-brainer for me. A country as big as ours definitely needed a big cargo operator. There was so much to be done. It has taken SpiceJet a lot of time and energy and of course a lot of investment to make SpiceXpress what it is today. It’s only recently that the national focus has shifted to cargo flights but we have been doing well for some time now.
