SpiceJet to start door-to-door cargo service

Mumbai: SpiceJet has planned to ramp up its cargo business and introduce door-to-door delivery service for its corporate customers from March.

As fares decline, the airline is looking at various means to improve its topline and cargo business. “Cargo and logistics is a growing business for us. Earlier, we used to outsource the business but, now we are handling it ourselves. We have tied up with courier firms and hiring extra staff for door-to-door cargo delivery. Initially, the service will be only for corporate clients but later we might extend it for retail customers as well,” said Managing Director Ajay Singh.

SpiceJet  posted fourth consecutive  profitable result with Rs 232 crore profit in Q3.

The airline  is in discussions with aircraft manufacturers and is looking to add 100-150 narrow body and turboprop aircraft. Singh expects  to finalise the order this year.
